About the Author

Dr Louvenia C. Jackson, MFT, ATR-BC, PhD, is Assistant Professor at Loyola Marymount University, Marital and Family Therapy Department and a member on the board of directors for the American Art Therapy Association. She implements cultural humility in coursework and has presented several times on cultural humility in art therapy, including the 2017 AATA conference.


This is a useful and encouraging book which points the way forward in a field often fraught with conflict. The concept of cultural humility complements much existing work in diversity and inclusion, and gathers it together to suggest an integrated art therapy practice.--Dr Marian Liebmann OBE, art therapist, lecturer and workshop leader, and author of many art therapy books
Cultural competence is conceptualized as a way of doing. Cultural humility is conceptualized as a way of being. This book offers insight into new paradigms in thinking. Acquiring cultural competence and engaging diverse clients with cultural humility ensures that their identities will be respected within the practice of art therapy.--Stella A. Stepney, MS, ATR-BC, LCAT, Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College
As a proponent of cultural competence, I applaud Dr. Jackson's paradigm, which shifts the discourse from proficiency to humility. The transformative reflective perspectives and art experientials enhance art therapists' appreciation of the attributes of cultural humility. Required reading for anyone committing to lifelong self-reflection, equitable patient-practitioner interactions, and social action.--Cheryl Doby-Copeland, PhD, ATR-BC, LPC, LMFT, HLM, Clinical Program Coordinator, Parent Infant Early Childhood Enhancement program, Adjunct Faculty member GW Art Therapy program
Louvenia Jackson's Cultural Humility in Art Therapy proposes Cultural Humility as a way of being that positions, develops and integrates art therapy professionals as spiritual, political, and creative beings. At its best this book offers up practical pathways through this complex world of authentic engagement with diverse clients in this age of social justice. Vital for BAME practitioners, useful for all.--Jean Campbell, Art Therapist
