This book brings together leading UK researchers in the field of arts and health, including creative arts therapies. The chapters are based on presentations originally given at a UK seminar series on scholarship and research on connections between the creative arts, health and wellbeing, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council. It will be of interest to anyone practising or researching arts and health, in both hospitals and community settings. Because of the nature of the work, the volume is cross-disciplinary in theory and multi-disciplinary in practice. As such, it will appeal to a cross-section of practitioners and thinkers. Research in the field of arts, health and wellbeing has developed considerably in recent years, and in the dialogue of this book some of the big questions for the agenda are addressed.

"As developments in the arts and health field continue to gather momentum, this is a timely book. What has previously been missing to help us all make the case for this work is a critical mass of evidence bringing research and practice together. With such wide-ranging coverage of the field in this book, from the impact of the arts in mental health and chronic pain to community-based activity through arts therapy and considerations around making the economic case, the text will be an essential reference book for [those] working in arts in health across public health, as well as primary and secondary health contexts." - Nicola Crane, Programme Director, Guy's and St Thomas' Charity, UK
