Transformative learning is a theory of adult education that focuses on the profound changes-or transformations-that can occur in the lives of adults. It is not as concerned with incremental advances in learners' knowledge as it is with their mental frameworks for making meaning from life experiences. This book explores the role of creative expression in this transformational process. It provides a practical and accessible approach to using creative expression with adult learners. The book provides various tools, methods and creative modalities that have been used to promote transformative learning, and discusses how adult educators themselves are transformative learners.

"Enhanced with indexes and other useful appendixes, Creative Expression in Tranformative Learning is a top pick for any collection focusing on adult education."--The Midwest Book Review, December 2009

"Transformative learning is a theory of adult education that focuses on adult students' mental framework for making meaning from life experiences. Here, adult educators describe experiences using photography, collage, movement, meditation, dream imagery, fiction, dramatic improvisation, and music in adult classrooms to foster transformative leaning."--Reference & Research Book News, February 2010

"The book lives up to its title by doing a wonderful job of incorporating practical application of the information it includes. It provides a colorful array of possibilities to foster learning that are often overlooked and left untouched. Adult educators or faculty members interested in creative expression and the arts should definitely consider acquiring a copy of this book. I will surely intrigue and inspire its readers." -- Brenton Wimmer, Adult Learning, Volume 22, Number 1, Winter 2011
