Art therapists have an essential part to play in supporting children and their families when a child is undergoing medical treatment. The art therapists who contribute to this book offer their experience of working in medical environments and creating hospital art therapy programs for working with children and young people. Readers will find interventions and techniques, along with program development ideas and diverse approaches to work with patients. Chapters also cover different diagnoses and areas of healthcare, such as oncology, chronic illness and burns. The challenges and opportunities for art therapy in working with terminal illness and bereavement are also addressed.

Pediatric Medical Art Therapy delineates the essential considerations and lessons for the art therapist who joins the medical journeys of children and their families, and emphasises the importance of this unique role.

Michelle Itczak is Assistant Professor in the Department of Counseling/Art Therapy at the University of Indianapolis and also works in private practice. Michelle was the founding art therapist of the art therapy program at Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health. She lives in Indianapolis, US.
