Using extensive examples from practice with a range of client groups, this edited book confronts the assumption that people with autism are not able to function within the metaphorical realms of the imagination and creativity. It demonstrates that not only are people who function along the spectrum capable of engaging in creative exploration but that through encountering these processes in the clinical context of dramatherapy changes can be made that are life enhancing. As such it is a contribution to developing the theory and practice of creative arts therapies interventions with clients with autism.
