The theoretical and practical formation of European Art Therapy as a discipline requires establishing communication with theorists and practitioners in other continents or countries. Accomplishing this requires two approaches. A more theoretical approach uses European Art Therapy as a research and teaching tool. A more practical approach seeks experiences in common, as well as quantitative and qualitative investigations, which in turn lead to theoretical-methodical conclusions. The contributions in this volume employ both approaches. Individual articles cannot, of course, fully describe the extent of art therapy throughout Europe, but they are a source of information and inspiration for readers. Whether theorists or practitioners, readers will find articles that address their particular concerns, enabling them to find tools they can use in their own specific work.
