Contemporary Art Therapy with Adolescents offers practical and imaginative solutions to the multifaceted challenges that clinicians face when treating young people. The author fuses the contemporary theories of clinical treatment with the creative processes of art therapy to arrive at a synthesis which yields successful outcomes when working with adolescents. Clinicians of allied disciplines, particularly art therapists, will find practical suggestions for using imagery to enrich their relationships with teenaged clients. The process of using art-making therapeutically, and the challenges of applying creativity in the current mental health world, are explored. Shirley Riley reviews current theories on adolescent development and therapy, and emphasizes the primary importance of relying on the youths' own narrative in the context of their social and economic backgrounds. She has found this approach preferential to following pre-designed assessment directives as a primary function of art therapy. Family, group and individual treatment are examined, as is the adolescent's response to short- and long-term treatment in residential and therapeutic school settings. The book is firmly rooted in Riley's clinical experience of working with this age group, and her proven ability to combine contemporary theories of adolescent treatment with inventive and effective art expressions.

This new and timely second edition, updated with an expanded discussion of arts-based processes and additional instructions and heartfelt client narratives, continues in the trajectory of the first, promising to shape and provide guidance to both current and next generation of art therapists in the studio-based approach to working with a challenging and often maligned population. It continues to offer much in the way of guidance, motivation, and practical advice around the use of art making as the central curative component when developing therapeutic relationships with hurt and troubled teens. The author’s initial focus is on understanding the developmental issues facing adolescents and how these affect the psychotherapeutic treatment. This includes an outline of the phases of therapy: Resistance Phase, Imaging Phase, Immersion Phase, and Letting Go Phase. The second primary focus is devoted to the art as therapy approach to art psychotherapy, with several chapters examining components of this model. The final focus presents the author’s therapeutic approach to working with adolescents through responsive art making. A positive by-product of the book is that the reader will find many practical suggestions regarding materials, artistic tasks, and therapeutic techniques. In addition, the text is greatly enhanced by the powerful illustrations that highlight the chapters’ case narratives. This new edition continues to share the author’s essential philosophical, technical, pragmatic, and ethical aspects of practicing art therapy that have made him a standard-bearer for those who believe in the therapeutic power of art. The Dynamics of Art as Therapy with Adolescents should be a cornerstone text for any Adolescent Art Therapy course.

Art Therapy with Chronic Physically Ill Adolescents explores the effectiveness of art therapy as a primary intervention with an adolescent population with chronic physical illnessOCoin this particular case, with adolescents in chronic renal failure either on hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis or after kidney transplantation. The hypothesis is that art therapy: (1) facilitates expression of emotions through artwork, ideally including verbal expression; (2) enhances self-esteem and identity; (3) helps them cope with their chronic physical illness; and (4) finally, offers an opportunity to vent anger and frustration (catharsis). By getting a safe place to explore issues related not only to the developmental stage but also to the conditions of chronic physical illness, these teenagers may begin to discover their individual strengths through art therapy, rather than dwell primarily on their individual weaknesses. In essence, the book will explore whether art therapy can be a means by which this population could be helped to accept and integrate their chronic physical conditions into their lives and to find an appropriate place in our society. In addition, the book will investigate whether art therapy could become a sanctuary, one in which the patient is allowed to keep control, to make his own decisions, and to explore and develop a sense of freedom in an overwhelming controlling environment. Consisting of four chapters, Chapter 1 provides an in-depth perspective on literature review and adolescence as a developmental stage. The psychological impact of chronic physical illness in adolescence, creativity and art therapy, medical art therapy, and the creative process is discussed. Chapter 2 studies methodology, independent variables, settings, procedures, materials used, and the gathering of data. Chapter 3 addresses case histories, their artwork the short-term treatment group, and the long-term treatment group. Seven clients and examples of their artwork are presented. Chapter 4 discusses results, conclusions and ideas for further studies."

Much of the emphasis within the field of art therapy is on sharing and creating experiences with clients, yet the genre of installation art--an inherently experiential art form--within the therapy session has yet to be explored in art therapy literature. Installation differs from conventional sculpture by its dominating physical presence over an entire space, inviting spectators to enter the artwork and demanding their active interactions. This thesis recounts the implementation, artistic process, and public exhibition of a six-month installation art directive with a group of four female adolescents from Community Counseling Centers of Chicago, a non-profit organization that provides a holistic approach to social and mental health services. Using current and historical critiques of installation art, theories of adolescent development, and art therapy research, this thesis examines the following four questions: 1) In what ways can inventing and constructing an installation, or environment, be therapeutic? 2) How might a client utilize or respond to the fundamental qualities of installation art such as audience engagement and immersion, multisensory stimulation, site specificity, and temporality? 3) How might attaining and using unconventional art materials play a role within the client-therapist relationship and therapeutic process? 4) What kinds of challenges might art therapists or clients face when working with installation art directives? Included in this thesis is an analysis of pertinent literature with a focus on installation art and public exhibitions within art therapy, four individual case studies highlighting the directive's therapeutic process with art images and reflection writing, and a comprehensive six-month timeline outlining the procedures of the project. The implementation of the installation art directive and exhibition proved to be effective in meeting the adolescents' desired needs, which included sharing their personal stories through immersive, creative expression; receiving validation through audience interaction; having a sense of empowerment and control in their environment; and being truly seen and heard.

The purpose of this research was to focus on the use of art with young females as they enter middle school. The study took place in an urban middle school during the first 15 weeks of the 2006-2007 school year. One Caucasian and two African American females were chosen for this research that began when all three were 11 years old. A curriculum of fifteen art tasks was designed to help the girls get to know themselves better in order to ease their transition into middle school, as well as adolescence. Each task helped the clients to think about her likes, dislikes, family situations, and friends or peers as it effects her thoughts, actions and choices. The clients were enthusiastic about art in general but were motivated for the majority of these sessions. By the end of the research, all three girls had established a base group of friends which they interacted with on a daily basis and had participated in at least one after school activity which increased their general demeanor, eased anxiety around their peers, and increased their self-esteem.
