Diane Waller

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceeding with ISSN or ISBNChapter

Abstract

Discusses the relationship between the European-based Society for the Study of the Psychopathology of Expression emerging largely from French psychiatry in the 1950s and the discipline and profession of art therapy in which the UK has led in achieving statutory regulation. Explores the often uneasy relationships that developed as a result of the influence of anti-psychiatry on many of the UK pioneers of art therapy.
