This paper provides context for the zine, “The Good Enough Space”, printed in March 2015, distributed to students at Creative Arts Therapies Programs at Concordia University, and available online.
The zine illustrates the fictionalized account of two art therapy interns in their second year practicum and presents some of the challenges they face creating consistency for their clients and conducting art therapy in the spaces provided at their practicum sites. Motivated by my experience of having to shift my expectations of the art therapy room and to learn to adapt to what was available to me, I was interested in finding out what was necessary to creating consistency for our clients in changing circumstances.
This research explores the ideal art therapy space, art therapy in hospital settings, art therapy in school settings, positive therapist qualities, and affect regulation modeled in the client therapist relationship.
