Call for Entries/ Artwork/Proposals

Art Therapy: Journal of the American Art Therapy Association is seeking submissions for a special issue that will deepen the discourse on culture, diversity, and identity in art therapy. Art therapists are practicing in a rapidly changing world in which cultural diversity is a mode of social existence. How does art therapy address culture as it intertwines with such identity markers as class, race, ethnicity, gender, age, disability, diagnosis, and place? What does diversity mean in different contexts? How do art therapists grapple with the structures of oppression, racism, discrimination, and obstacles to care in the institutions, settings, and programs in which they practice?

We invite submissions that offer original research (quantitative, qualitative, art-based, etc.), comprehensive literature reviews, theory and practice papers, or viewpoints that address these and related critical questions; that interrogate institutional, educational, and supervisory assumptions and methods; or that present innovative programs or effective interventions to counteract oppression, exclusion, conflict, and injustice, among other possible themes.

DEADLINE: November 1, 2014.
