Although it was first aired live in December 1995, the content is still fresh and relevant to the field of art therapy. It’s a good “what is art therapy” for the general public and related professionals. And besides, when is the last time you listened to a broadcast about art therapy during the morning rush hour in Tokyo? Your host is Jon Kabira and if you speak Japanese, you will get a chance to hear his description of art therapy at the beginning and end of the interview; the rest is in English.
