Abstract

This project investigates the early development of dyad art therapy and the publications leading to its birth and subsequent consolidation as a modality. Dyad art therapy is an intervention method whereby the caregiver and the child are both simultaneously involved in the therapeutic process by means of art making or art exploration. This modality harnesses the creative process in order to address and work through issues relative to the parent-child relationship. Dyad art therapy is an emerging format of intervention showing a recent increase of use in practice (Taylor Buck, Dent-Brown & Parry, 2013) and visibility as witnessed by publications. This research project highlights certain characteristics proper to the dyadic format and situates the development of the modality within a larger theoretical context, notably the seminal roots of family therapy, Object Relations, Attachment Theory, and mother-child matrix theories.
A review of art therapy literature, enhanced by interviews with experienced dyad art therapists, serves to retrace the early development of parent-child therapeutic work from the 1970s through its gradual evolution until the birth of dyad art therapy as a modality in its own right at the turn of the century. The author presents dyad art therapy contributors who independently developed methods of working concurrently with parent and child. Notably, the work of Lucille Proulx (2003), with the first comprehensive model of dyadic art therapy, was determinant in launching the affirmation of the modality and initiating the beginning of the present period of consolidation.
