Exploring Ethical Dilemmas in Art Therapy presents not only the ethical principles to which art therapists must adhere, but also offers real life examples of ethical dilemmas from a wide range of professional settings. Particular emphasis is paid to the role that boundaries (emotional, physical, technological) play in the art therapist’s work as well as ethical dilemmas that may appear when taking on additional roles such as case manager or expert witness. Offering a unique presentation centered on diverse vignettes with important lessons and ethical takeaways highlighted throughout, this exciting new volume will be an invaluable resource to all future and current art therapists.
