The chapters in this section emerge from the authors’ commonly held belief in the inner wisdom and resilience of human beings. Betensky, Rhyne, Garai, Rogers, and Allen offer their own unique visions of art therapy, under the larger umbrella of humanistic approaches. These authors share a deep conviction that individuals long for, and strive to create, meaning in their lives. Despite changes-in health care delivery systems stressing short-term therapy, and in literary forms emphasizing gender-inclusive languagein the time since the first publication of this text, the earlier contributions hold up remarkably well. Perhaps this is a testament to the unchanging core issues of human existence.
