About AATA’s Art Therapy Bibliographic Search Tool

AATA’s Art Therapy Bibliographic Search Tool allows you to find listings of art therapy publications and theses from FOUR research sources: the Art Therapy Outcomes Bibliography, the Art Therapy Assessment Bibliography, the Multicultural Committee Selected Bibliography and Resource List, and the National Art Therapy Thesis and Dissertation Abstract Compilation.

What is it?

The Art Therapy Bibliographic Search Tool enables you to search bibliographic entries based on one or all of the following characteristics: author name, category/treatment group, keywords, title, reference type, and year of publication.

All users will be able to see basic bibliographic information such as authors, category/treatment group, title, page numbers, publication, reference type, volume, and year. AATA members will also have exclusive access to more detailed information, such as abstract, comments, DOI, method, topic, and more!

The references listed under the Bibliographic Search Tool are updated continually. Please direct any corrections to info@arttherapy.org.
