Communication Research on Expressive Arts and Narrative as Forms of Healing
More Than Words
Communication Research on Expressive Arts and Narrative as Forms of Healing: More than Words examines a number of widely used expressive arts therapies from a communication perspective, providing case studies and other qualitative investigations focused specifically on communication aspects of expressive therapies including drama, music, and dance/movement therapies. This collection, edited by Kamran Afary and Alice Marianne Fritz and authored by contributors with experience as educators, artists, and licensed therapists, integrates communication, therapy, and pedagogy to explore the role and efficacy of expressive arts therapies. Scholars of communication, performing arts, and mental health will find this book particularly useful, along with mental health practitioners and scholars conducting fieldwork.
