  5. Hi Dr. Deah,

    I am an Art Therapist working in a Residential Treatment Center for people with Eating Disorders. Our current modality is an evidenced-based, CBT/ERP model. I would like to introduce art-based body image work, including body tracing, into our program. I am getting some resistance because I am having difficulty supporting the “evidence” for doing art-based body image work especially tracings. Do you know of any studies that would help my cause?

    • Hi Mike, It is painful that in 2017 art therapy and other arts based therapies are still fighting for their place in treatment programs. The efficacy needs to be researched and documented thoroughly by professionals in order to prove the value of these interventions. I believe the the Art Therapy Association and other professional orgs. Have resources that would help you plead your case. I would also contact the art therapy programs at universities and colleges e.g. College of Notre Dame, for the most current research. If I come across anything pertinent I will send it to you. In the meantime keep up the good fight! I have thirty years of clinical experience that leaves me no doubt that The expressive arts therapies are integral components in healing.
