Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book for counselors who are looking for something more than "talk therapy". Through the use of sandplay, dreamwork and other creative therapies, Dr. Lewis enters the "imaginal realm" with her clients. According to the author, it is in this sacred place that true healing and "transformation" occurs. The author has developed her own integrated theoretical orientation which is rooted in both Gestalt and Jungian Psychology. Through the use of case illustrations and pictures of actual client art work, Dr. Lewis invites the reader into their world. This approach is original, insightful and delicately magical. A must read for the energized, dedicated and creative therapists out there yearning for more. This is it!!

Format: Paperback
Creative Transformation: The Healing Power of the Arts by Penny Lewis is an exceptional book. Published by Chiron Publications, it is not strictly Jungian. Ms. Lewis is a dance and drama therapist with Jungian training from the C G Jung Institute of New York. Written in the 1993, its material remains timeless. Reading Creative Transformation: The Healing Power of the Arts is like taking a short course in psychoanalytic theory, Analytical Psychology, and Gestalt and the application of these ideas with patients. Ms. Lewis maintains that "the dance between conscious and unconscious is choreographed in the transitional space of the imaginal realm." She relies heavily on Mahler, Winnicott, by personal field between patients and therapist."

Section 2 of the book looks at the use of the arts from a perspective of developmental psychology. She leans heavily upon Margaret Mahler, D. W. Winnicott, James Masterson, and Nathan Salant-Schwartz. The rich use of black and white plates combined with a very expansive index, make this book an invaluable resource.

With patients who suffered trauma in early childhood, at a time that was preverbal or prior to the appearance of well-developed abstract thinking, the use of arts media can be a powerful tool for the healer. Creative Transformation: The Healing Power of the Arts is not a How To book, though the author provides ample illustrations of how she uses art in therapy. It is a clinical treatise, from someone well-versed in several psychotherapy approaches, in which the writer just happens to use the expressive arts media in addition to words.
