Music Therapy Selections on
Colorado HealthNet

This site provides some actual Real Audio recordings of music suitable for music therapy that you can play on your computer. Depending on an individual's response, the opera selections provided in the Classical section may or may not be therapeutic. But the Contemplative, Shakuhachi and Tibetan Flute selections should have relatively wide appeal. The celtic harp pieces in the Contemplative section are particularly fine. This wonderful contribution to the Web provides about two hours of music. A link to the latest version of the RealPlayer provides a state-of-the-art free player to access the selections.

American Art Therapy Association, Inc.

This Association site includes useful information for Art Therapist professionals, but it is rather sparse on content, as is the WWW as a whole in this area. There is a good definition of art therapy, a FAQ, and links to pages which discuss the legislative and regulatory status of art therapy in each state, including membership of certifying boards. There are a few old articles from their journal, Art Therapy and an informative FAQ.

Professional Articles on Art Therapy

These articles were written by Creative Arts Therapists in C.A.T.S., allied professionals and friends are copywritten by their authors. They are provided by Barbara Ann Levy, whose personal web site can be accessed from the directory http://plaza.interpost.net/cats.

Art Therapy and Computer Applications by Kenneth L. Williams
Studio Approaches In Art Therapy by Cathy Malchiodi
Medical Art Therapy by Cathy Malchiodi
Reflections On Postmodernism by Barbara Ann Levy

This is a pretty plain site, but worth looking at because it seems to be the primary technical content on Art Therapy on the WWW (March 1997).

This organizational site lacks a formal information source beyond a short but useful FAQ.  However, there is an archive of back issues of their magazine, Music Therapy Matters.
