Sample text

Lutts also explores how elements of reality were retained within the anthropomorphism, for example through the solitary life of Bambi’s father, appearing and disappearing without warning which, says Lutts, is key to his survival: ‘To be visible is to be vulnerable’ (1992: 163) and to be mature is to learn how to survive. Lutts discusses how Bambi is associated with ‘something soft and sentimental, even wimpy’ (1992: 168). Bambi remains a spotted fawn for three quarters of the film, the anthropomorphism equating the proportions of the fawn with those of a human infant; no wonder most of us immediately picture the cute and vulnerable Bambi rather than the mature stag.

Parloff concluded this was necessary because ‘research findings can be expected to exert all the impact of a quixotic Bambi planted firmly in the path of the onrushing Godzilla of cost-containment policies’ (1982: 725). A while later Parry (1995) replied. She urged psychotherapy researchers to resist capitulation to the clinical and cost-effectiveness imperatives of EBP in the NHS, arguing that the fragmented nature of psychotherapy and counselling provision was in part to do with the scepticism of those who believed these services were a luxury the financially strapped NHS could not afford.

As Slade and Priebe say: ‘evidence-based mental health care’ does not mean ‘RCT-based mental health care’ (2002: 229) and as a Minister for Health has remarked’ ‘“Trust me, I’m a patient” should be the guiding principle of the (new) agenda’ (Reid, 2003). I think art therapists have no choice but to engage with EBP but believe that we should do so in full awareness of the principles and policies that situate EBP in the UK’s public sector marketplace. Reviewing EBP’s underlying assumptions and the systems that continue to drive its implementation enable what constitutes the ‘best’ evidence to be seen as socially constructed by medicine, management and government, and the paradigm to be understood as a contemporary social movement, as a product of history, as a process.
