#58 – Understanding Art Therapy


Suzanne Lovell, Ph.D. for a number of years has been the program coordinator for the Master’s degree program in Art Therapy at Sonoma State University. After earning her own Master’s degree at Sonoma State, Dr. Lovell went on to earn her Ph.D. at The Union Institute. In addition to the Ph.D, she also is a Board Certified Art Therapist. Every other year, she also spends some weeks teaching in an Art Therapy program in Berne, Switzerland. In addition to her extensive teaching, program administration, and clinical work, Dr. Lovell has also authored chapters in two books on the subject. She has sent me a bibliography on Art Therapy which I will send to interested listeners. Just drop me an e-mail request. We close with a piece of podsafe music which seems particularly appropriate for our interview on Art Therapy with Dr. Lovell. It’s called “I Love Every Color” by Matthew Ebel and it’s on the Podshow Music Network.

    Although this interview was done in 2006, I just listened to it for the first time and it’s a gem! I am an art therapist, and was incredibly inspired by the way Dr. Lovell described art therapy and our field.

    The exploration of why it is so important for art therapists to be immersed in their own art process really resonated with me as well. I’m definitely going to share this interview with others! Thank you 🙂
