Abstract

As the profession of art therapy continues to grow and evolve, more and more questions and concerns seem to arise regarding the use of art in its professional practices. This paper is an exploration of views in this regard. Beginning with a discussion of the use of art in clinical settings by early psychiatrists, this paper proceeds to explore literature pertaining to the use of art in three subsequent periods of art therapy's professional development. These include art therapy's early days, middle period, and present practice. These chapters are followed by a section outlining questions articulated by current art therapy authors regarding potential problems in the profession and possible causes. Also included in the paper is a subjective analysis of information about art and art therapy. This paper is designed to inform and educate present and future art therapists, and to shine light on potential areas of concern in the profession.
