"The mission of the Center for International Rehabilitation Research 
Information and Exchange (CIRRIE) is to facilitate the sharing of 
information between rehabilitation researchers in the U.S. and those in 
other countries. CIRRIE makes available to the disability community in the 
U.S. knowledge that has been found useful in other countries. It does this 
through a number of resources that are found on this website.


Primary among them is the CIRRIE Database of International Research, which 
contains citations, abstracts, and in many cases, links to the full text 
of articles that report research conducted in countries other than the 


The International Encyclopedia of Rehabilitation provides a synthesis of 
much of this research. The majority of the authors of the Encyclopedia 
articles are from outside the U.S. as are the reviewers, providing the 
Encyclopedia with an international scope.


CIRRIE supports international collaboration in rehabilitation research 
through its program to support exchanges of researchers between the U.S. 
and other countries.


CIRRIE also develops educational resources related to culture and 
disability to strengthen the cultural competency of rehabilitation service 
providers who work with persons born outside the U.S., especially recent 



The CIRRIE Database of International Rehabilitation Research currently 
contains over 125,000 citations of international rehabilitation research 
published between 1990 and the present.

CIRRIE Guide to Searching


The CIRRIE Database collects citations from all areas of rehabilitation 
and compiles them into one central source. In addition to indexing from 
mainstream journals and internet sites, CIRRIE also includes citations to 
resources not readily available to U.S. researchers. Over 5000 journals 
are represented in the Database and abstracts are available for most 
citations. A list of journals is now available. There are over 125,000 
citations currently indexed with citations added monthly. The database 
includes citations from 1990 to the present.

International Encyclopedia of Rehabilitation

The International Encyclopedia of Rehabilitation is a collaborative effort 
from the Center for International Rehabilitation Research Information and 
Exchange (CIRRIE), at the University at Buffalo, SUNY, and the Laboratoire 
d'informatique et de terminologie de la rdaptation et de l'intation 
sociale (LITRIS), from the Institut de rdaptation en dicience physique de 
Quec (IRDPQ).

On its completion, the encyclopedia will include four hundred articles on 
rehabilitation and disability topics identified through terms found in the 
CIRRIE and REHABDATA Thesauri, the World Health Organization's 
International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) 
and the International Index and Dictionary of Rehabilitation and Social 
Integration (IIDRIS).

Links among the encyclopedia, CIRRIE and REHABDATA databases, the 
dictionary and other databases will create an integrated information 
system and a comprehensive synthesis of the field of rehabilitation in a 
free, accessible, online, multilingual encyclopedia in English, French, 
and Spanish.

This article aims to define the multiple ways that art therapy is employed 
in rehabilitation and how art therapists practice in rehabilitation 
settings. We describe the art-based practice continuum to demonstrate the 
various styles and practices used in rehabilitation settings. Some key 
contributions that art therapy can make to rehabilitation include: sensory 
experiences, symbolic expression, emotional expression, life enhancement, 
cognitive development and social connectedness. Finally, there is a 
discussion on the unique qualities of fostering creativity in 
rehabilitation and on the importance of the context where art therapy 
takes place.


Defining Art Therapy in Rehabilitation


Art therapy involves the discovery of new connections, relationships and 
meanings in a safe and non-judgmental atmosphere, which in turn provides 
the client with alternative perspectives on life and relationships with 
others. Thus, art therapy can work in multifaceted ways involving the 
whole person including sensory-motor, perceptual, cognitive, emotional, 
physical, social and spiritual aspects. Growth through art is seen as a 
sign of growth through the whole person (Karkou and Sanderson 2006).


Art therapy is a fluid, adaptable, and evolving field. Although art has 
always been an innate part of human civilisation it has only been since 
the Second World War that it has been properly recognised for its 
restorative and transformative qualities (Hogan 2001; Waller 1991). As 
Jones (2005) clarified, not only are we still discovering the nature of 
the arts but, we are also still in the early stages of understanding what 
art therapy does, how it does this and why it is effective.


Those who become art therapists have experience in at least one previous 
field of knowledge, such as: medicine, psychology, education, visual arts 
and social work traditions. It is through this amalgamation of knowledge 
and theoretical orientation that art therapists often define their 
practice with orientations such as, psychodynamic; humanistic (i.e. 
phenomenological, gestalt, person centered); psycho-educational 
(behavioural, cognitive behavioural, developmental); systemic (family and 
group therapy); as well as integrative and eclectic approaches (Jones 
2005; Rubin 2001).


Art therapists work in a variety of rehabilitation settings and with a 
variety of issues including: mental health problems; learning 
difficulties, language and communication difficulties, imprisonment, 
medical problems, sensory or physical problems, stress, emotional and/or 
social problems. Each of these contexts have their own requirements for 
rehabilitation and art therapists need to consider what aspects of art 
therapy can serve within the rehabilitative process (Jones 2005). 
Therefore, art therapists define what they do by the context they are 
working in. For example, in examining individuals who survived an Acquired 
Brain Injury as well as the researcher's own life experience, Smith (2007) 
highlighted how art served as an aid to rehabilitate sense of self, 
self-esteem and social skills through group participation and
