Landschaftsmalerei

Obwohl die Landschaftsmalerei lange Zeit als Untergenre angesehen wurde, ist sie doch über ihre Vorgänger -- die religiöse und historische Malerei -- hinausgewachsen und hat sich zu einem eigenen style entwickelt.

Example text

I wonder if the image of the depersonalised automaton is similarly associated with fears of a prescriptive approach to practice that might develop through EBP, outcomes being related to a narrowly defined ‘dose’ of art therapy administered in a rigid way that loses the unique encounter between client, therapist and the art process so that an undead practice ensues. Wells (2000) says that every monster is the promise of death and demise. They embody difference and exemplify the other. They are related to us yet they constantly threaten.

Qxd 9/7/2006 12:25 PM Page 21 Evidence-based Practice (as does art therapy; see Dudley, 2004) ‘will lose credibility and ultimately decline’ (Sturdee, 2001: 78) and mental health care become a loose set of disciplines that compete for credibility and status within the EBP framework. McLeod (2001) argues that the positivist approach to knowledge acquisition dominates research in the psychological therapies, outcome research having been governed by the assumptions of medicine. He says that this will probably continue because RCTs represent ‘the core values of modern bureaucratic forms of governance’ (McLeod, 1999: 158).

Godzilla becomes the not-always-so-unreasonable, sometimes vulnerable, heroic and helpful Godzilla whose energy and power can be harnessed. Thus the ‘self’ of processoriented therapy research might not be quite so helpless and vulnerable as is feared, and the ‘other’ that inquires about effectiveness and efficiency might well prove to be a powerful ally. A more positive prognosis for EBP in art therapy emerges, albeit one that acknowledges the difficulties of entering a relationship with something initially experienced as ‘other’ and which requires significant learning, change and challenges to art therapy’s, and EBP’s, status quo.
