Summary

As art therapy rapidly makes its mark across Asia, this book documents how the field of art therapy is taking shape as both a profession and a discipline in this region. It looks at how art therapists in Asia are assimilating Western models and adapting them to create unique home-grown practices. 
Building on theory, research and practice that has been developed in the West, practitioners throughout Asia are creating innovative art therapy programs that reflect cultural diversity and draw on ideas from Chinese medicine and Eastern philosophy, spirituality and art traditions. With chapters from leading art therapists and community artists in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Cambodia, Thailand, China, India, The Philippines and Singapore, this book pulls together thought-provoking perspectives and effective approaches from which East and West can both learn. 
The first of its kind, this book will be an informative and inspiring addition to the bookshelves of all art therapy professionals and students, as well as anyone with an interest in Eastern cultures and cross-cultural working.

  • How to Write About Africa: Practical Analysis on Key Aspects - cover

    How to Write About Africa:...

    How to Write about Africa: Practical Analysis on Key Aspects is a book that prepares you for the task of writing about Africa and African subjects-matters. Writing about Africa is not a difficult task, it is, however, usually thought of as simple, too simple, since Africa as a whole has been treated as a giant monolith. This oversimplification of African issues has misled many into churning out articles that misrepresent Africa, insults Africa and, ultimately, misinforms their audience. Drawing from a plethora of columns, scholarly and journalistic texts, events and instances, Joel Okafor sets out to accomplish two things with this book. One, this book debunks so many of the long-held notions on Africa as related to sources and statistics; two, it mentions specific African issues and discusses how to and how not to write them. 
    While this book is primarily targeted at people who desire to write about Africa but reside outside Africa, it is, equally, a useful piece for people who just want to read about Africa and for Africans who aspire to write a piece relating to the whole continent. Wherever you are and for whatever purpose you read this book, you are assured of a book that will give you fresh insights and endow your writing with a richer, stronger edge.
