My name is Glenda Needs, and I am a tertiary trained and quite experienced art therapist and teacher. I have had a long, wide and varied history in the art therapy world. Currently however, I work for two days each week in Paediatric Palliative Care in a major Children’s hospital. For the remainder of the week I head up Art Therapy training for a Higher Education Provider.
In all my travels, whether teaching classes, presenting at conferences, or even chatting to colleagues, I am constantly asked if I have written a book. The answer has always been ‘no’. Despite this, I have written extensively, just not a ‘book’.
I have noticed many more books about art therapy in the last couple of years, than ever before. Yet, in all of these books, I have not found a basic student text book.
I am not a writer. Of course I write, but not as a profession, my profession is art. Thus I must trust that my passion, skills and general knowledge about art therapy will shine through, hopefully causing less focus on my writing skills per se, and more on the art therapy.
Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you here often.
