This guidebook contains 25 Case Studies. NOTE: For more case studies, check out Volume 1 here:
The case studies contain specific information about an individual client that forms the basis of the art intervention used. Many psychological issues are dynamic and therefore a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to each issue is not possible, however, these case studies will provide you with insight into the interaction between the client and the art therapist for a specific issue.
As these case studies represent a snapshot of the client’s progress in treatment. The exercises could be used as described, or as a guide for new and original tasks developed by the Art Therapist. Responsibility for treatment resides with the individual therapist who understands their client’s specific needs. The art therapy exercise should not be viewed as a pre-defined directive on how to treat a client that presents with a specific range of problems.
BENEFITS OF CASE STUDIES:
Case Studies are an excellent way to build a database of knowledge to draw upon when working with your client.
- REAL-WORLD EXAMPLES – Case studies provide real-world examples of how art therapy has been used to address specific mental health issues in clients. Therapists can gain insight into the art therapy process, and better understand how it can be used to help clients.
- LEARNING TOOL – Case studies can be a powerful tool for learning. By analyzing and reflecting on each case study, art therapists can gain a deeper understanding of the art therapy process, and develop new skills and techniques that they can use with clients.
- INSPIRATION – Case studies can also be a source of inspiration and creativity. By seeing how other therapists have used art therapy in innovative ways to address specific challenges, art therapists can be inspired to try new approaches with clients.
- PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT – By studying case studies, you can enhance your professional development as an art therapist. This can help improve your practice and care for your clients.

HOW THIS GUIDEBOOK WORKS
The case studies are listed alphabetically. The case studies cover a range of mental health and psychological issues within the human experience.
Majority of the case studies relate to adult client work, however, we have identified the case studies that refer to working with children. Some case studies that are adult-focused can be expanded to use with children with guidance from the art therapist.
This guidebook contains all case studies in one singular document that you can use offline with all content contained in one central document.
The structure of each case study follows the following format:
- Background about the psychological issue
- About the Client
- Art Therapy Exercise
- Client Insight and Outcomes
- Art Therapy Exercise Artwork
