Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A study of art-based processes within parental training was conducted based on fifteen interviews with art therapists. Practitioners described ways in which these interventions are used in clinical practice, and how they perceive the meaning and influence of art-based interventions on therapeutic processes. The interviews were analyzed according to the principles of Grounded Theory (Charmaz, 2006). Four major themes emerged which captured the concepts, dilemmas, and the contribution of visual art within parental training. This study attempts to shed light on the contribution of integrating art-based interventions in parental training, and thus encourage advances in the field.
