From a practitioner's perspective the roles, responsibilities, and overall creative contributions of the professional arts therapist(s), within collaborative work, are asserted in this pivotal publication. Each chapter provides a purposeful and sensitive self-reflexive investigation that results in a strategic and perhaps renewed conceptualization of one's role that ultimately leads to an informed and enriched practice. This book is a welcomed addition to our collection of contemporary mental health and arts therapy resources; a definite recommended read for our graduates.

This rich collection of essays, edited by a respected colleague in the arts therapies, provides ample evidence of the many benefits to be gained from collaborative working in a broad range of settings. It offers exciting examples of innovative work, practical advice and theoretical principles, which link theory and practice in ways that will enrich the arts therapies professions.
