Title: A qualitative single case study exploring the role of time-limited art therapy with a male adult at an addictions management residential facility in Singapore
Synopsis:

This qualitative single case study explores provision of time-limited art therapy to a 46-year-old adult male in a residential addiction management programme in Singapore. The literature review outlines some of the key theoretical writings relating to art therapy in the treatment of people with substance related addictions. Although this study locates the art therapy provision in the particular context described, the author hopes to clarify that the benefits received by this population are not determined by their treatment setting. Implications and findings suggest that art therapy can provide tools and skills to people with addictions, as well as inform the treatment of these inpatients regardless of the limitation of time. The study intends to integrate aspects of relevant psychodynamic theories and models in use, these include stages of change model, attachment theory, and defense mechanisms; while adding to the pool of qualitative research with the addiction population.
