An up-to-date and in-depth guide to the many applications of digital media in art therapy
Rick L. Garner is Professor of Art Education at Kennesaw State University, USA. He has worked in the areas of art therapy, art education, disabilities and technology for 25 years, and has presented and published on these topics internationally.
Digital Art Therapy is an important, timely book. Finally, Rick Garner and the contributing authors have placed the digital platform where it squarely belongs: as a 21st century palette for today's art therapy consumers. It would behoove any art therapist to read this book and become educated on the digital apps and possibilities for using a digital platform as a vehicle for communication, recovery, and ongoing health. -- Dr. Ellen G. Horovitz, ATR-BC, LCAT, E-RYT, LFYP, C-IAYT, Art Therapist, Certified Yoga Therapist and author of `Digital Image Transfer: Creating Art With Your Photography'
