This book emphasises ecological, nature-assisted expressive and creative arts and art therapies within the context of the current ecological crises. Rich in fresh theoretical perspectives, this timely compendium of theory, research, and practice also provides methods and tools that can help the reader understand and incorporate new eco perspectives into their work.
Building on the concept of poiesis as the human creative function, this book seeks to stress the importance of humanity’s ecopoietic capacity, creating a more sustainable life for humans. It has been specifically created within the context of this most critical period of human existence, and acts as a forum for innovation based on the values of the environmental movement and its desire to address the extensive sociopsychological impact of the ecological crisis.
