About the Author

Lynn Kapitan, PhD, ATR-BC, HLM, is founder, professor, and director of the Professional Doctorate of Art Therapy program at Mount Mary University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She is the former executive editor of Art Therapy: Journal of the American Art Therapy Association, as well as an honorary life member and past president of the American Art Therapy Association. The author of numerous research articles, editorials, and national and international keynotes, Dr. Kapitan has practiced as a social activist art therapist and research consultant for non-governmental agencies in Latin America.


"In her engaging, direct and disarming manner, Dr. Lynn Kapitan has drawn from her inexhaustible experiences and fathomless knowledge to create a comprehensively informative and highly readable text that clearly reflects her love for the field and research. This second edition is more than a mere reiteration-it offers extremely valuable and timely updates. It belongs in every practitioner's library."
David E Gussak, PhD, ATR-BC, Professor of Art Therapy, Florida State University; author of Art on Trial; and coeditor of The Wiley Handbook of Art Therapy "I heartily recommend the second edition of Lynn Kapitan's Introduction to Art Therapy Research. Clear and open-minded, it remains accessible to art therapists of all persuasions. I have a hunch (though sadly without any quantitative or qualitative data) that the welcome maturation of our profession regarding research is due in no small part to the first edition of this book. Both enlightening and even-handed, it represents a significant literary accomplishment in today's complex informational world."
Judith A. Rubin, PhD, ATR-BC, HLM, editor of Approaches to Art Therapy and author of The Art of Art Therapy "A classic just got better! Dr. Kapitan updates, reorganizes, and expands what was already a terrific book. I have taught from the first edition since its original publication and enthusiastically welcome this new version. It is an essential text for students and a valuable addition to the professional art therapist's library."
Randy M. Vick, MS, HLM, ATR-BC, LCP, Professor of Art Therapy, School of the Art Institute of Chicago "Researchers at all levels will appreciate the exciting advances in art therapy research incorporated into the second edition. Illustrated with exemplars from art therapy research published since the first edition, new content includes grounded theory and anti-oppressive research, multicultural competencies in conducting research, and contemporary revisions to the quantitative and qualitative sections. Dr. Kapitan's writing exemplifies the quality research she espouses. I can't wait to introduce students to this book!" Holly Feen, PhD, ATR-BC, Associate Professor and Coordinator, Art Therapy Program, Wayne State University, Michigan "This 2nd edition provides a practical and informed contribution to the profession and practice of art therapy in terms of recent trends in research with considerable significance to application in a range of contexts. Approaches, concepts and insights are delineated systematically, encouraging practitioners, educators and students alike to consider, evaluate, design and engage in meaningful research that is relevant and pragmatic and that progresses the discipline forward." Ronald P.M.H. Lay, MA, ATR-BC, AThR,
Registered and Credentialed Art Therapist, Supervisor and Program Leader of the MA in Art Therapy, LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore
