Magazine Photo Collage: A Multicultural Assessment and Treatment Technique

Magazine Photo Collage: A Multicultural Assessment and Treatment Technique Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this volume, a noted art therapist describes the Magazine Photo Collage MPC projective test and demonstrates its value for therapists working with adults and children of all ages. A highly effective assessment and treatment technique, the MPC is simple to administer and easy for patients to produce, even if they are uncomfortable creating images through drawing, painting, or sculpture. Moreover, unlike most projective tests, the MPC is not culture-bound: by matching the photos provided with the patient's ethnicity, the therapist can enable the patient to reveal conflicts more easily.; The book includes 26 case studies of patients from various ethnic and age groups and 96 full-page examples of MPC, reproduced and analyzed. The cases cover obsessive-compulsive disorder, anorexia and bulimia nervosa, post-traumatic stress disorder, suicidal ideation, acting-out behaviour, attention deficit disorder, drug abuse, schizophrenia, sexual problems, and other difficulties.

Book News Annotation:

Describes the therapeutic uses of collage--cutting pictures from magazines, pasting them into a collage, and writing or talking about the result. The advantages of this technique are that it is not culturally biased, its use can yield important insights, and it is easily integrated into other forms of therapy. Includes many case studies and examples of collages.
