The Australian and New Zealand Journal of Arts Therapy (ANZJAT) is a peer-reviewed annual publication of the Australian, New Zealand and Asian Creative Arts Therapies Association.
The journal provides a lively forum for academic research and practice-based papers with a focus on reflexivity and innovation in the field. It sets out to offer a useful resource for professionals and trainees, and to contribute to broader knowledge and understanding of the arts therapies. ANZJAT creates opportunities and encouragement for new and established authors within Australia, New Zealand, Asia/Pacific and internationally to publish their work. The journal promotes a diversity of modalities, philosophical orientations, voices and genres.
The journal publishes full-length papers on selected themes and original research; shorter papers – brief practice-based papers, case studies and discussion papers; interviews with contributors to the field of the arts therapy; reviews of books, videos, performances and exhibitions; and creative contributions such as creative writing, poetry, artworks, photo essays, illustrated stories, cartoons and documentation of performance works.
The current edition is ANZJAT Volume 12, Number 1, 2017
This edition was launched at the Conference in Melbourne last December.
We are currently working on Volume 13, Number 1, the inaugural conference edition which will be published online. We hope to have this published in early September. We are also working on Volume 13, Number 2, which will be launched at the Inaugural ANZACATA Conference to be held in Perth in December.
