Elmaleh, Shlomo (2000) Phototherapy as an adjunct to art therapy with a female adolescent in the school setting. Other thesis, Concordia University.
This qualitative research paper demonstrates, with the help of a case study and the H.T.P. assessment, how art therapy and phototherapy help facilitate personal growth with a female adolescent in an alternative high school in Quebec. It demonstrates the use of photography as a specialized form to address clients' concerns as well as a catalyst for verbal and expressive therapy with adolescents in a school setting. The paper also examines the methods that have been used in the past in the treatment with "normal" adolescents and review the use of art and phototherapy in the school setting. The paper explores the role of the art therapist in the school setting and the changes in the education system that brought for the introduction of art therapy treatment with normal adolescents. It brings my personal experience with establishing an art/photo therapy program in a high school and explores the variables, including the difficulties and limitations, around this experience.
