Photography is an activity that can be enjoyed by all ages whether as a valued leisure pursuit, a creative hobby or as an occasional holiday pastime. On a deeper level, however, photography shows us how to look at things from different perspectives, to reflect, to communicate and to express ourselves in a way that goes beyond words. The reflective qualities of this accessible arts medium make it an ideal tool to increase self-awareness and instigate change. This book shows how it can be used to encourage and support personal and professional growth with a wide range of ages and in a variety of therapeutic contexts. Containing a wealth of ideas and easy to follow instructions, "Moving Beyond the Image" shows how the camera can be used to promote communication and self-expression, and in building self esteem. Whether working on a one-to-one basis or with groups, Claire Craig gives clear advice on how professionals can use photography to bring about change in the lives of their clients. This practical book highlights how photography can easily be embedded into existing therapeutic programmes. It provides a detailed look at the range of photographic equipment available and offers creative exercises organised around a series of self-development themes. This comprehensive guide will be ideal for occupational therapists, social workers, teachers and any practitioners interested in ways of promoting personal and professional development through the image making process.
