Detailed Description

publication date: September 2013 ISBN 978-1-84102-356-4 234 x 156 mm 144 pages Arts Therapies and the Intelligence of Feeling reflects the theme of the September 2011 ECArTE Conference held in Lucca, Italy. ‘Intelligence’ has come a long way since Binet: the brain’s autonomous capacity for adaptation is now seen not as a single but as a multi-dimensional capability (Howard Gardner, 1983), and is understood to include the emotions as well as mental reasoning (Daniel Goleman, 1995). If the arts therapies can claim to work with the intelligence of feeling then the prospect of an intelligible Method might be within reach.
