Subtitles in Simplified Chinese were created by Dr. Liona Lu in 2007 and a DVD was produced by the Taiwan Institute of Psychotherapy in 2008, now available through Expressive Media. Asked why she undertook the project Dr. Lu wrote:
“I am grateful that I was able to introduce “Art Therapy Has Many Faces” with Chinese subtitles, at a time that the profession was just being recognized in Taiwan. This film gives a wonderful introduction to the profession and shows the potential power of art when it is offered to people in need. As art has no borders, so does art therapy. The vivid imagery of this film touches the hearts of the audience, generatng new ideas about how art therapy may be used here and now.”
