Editorial Reviews

Review

“Rubin knows the story-telling power of images, whether conveyed in words or pictures―moving or still.  Students and professionals alike will enjoy this new edition with its clear, insightful writing, many illustrations, and an accompanying DVD to bring the topic of art therapy further to life.”Randy M. Vick, MS, ATR-BC, LCPC, Associate Professor, Art Therapy, The School of the Art Institute of Chicago 

“Richly illustrated by vignettes that illuminate theory and bring it into practice, Rubin retains the same lively, passionate and accessible style of writing that was so refreshing in the first edition. This is a key text for both beginning and experienced art therapists.” - Diane Waller, PhD, Professor of Art Psychotherapy at Goldsmiths, University of London; author of Group Interactive Art Therapy and Art Therapy and Progressive Illness

“Rubin’s revision of Introduction to Art Therapy is deeply intelligent and yet easily accessible. She clarifies complex issues and uses eloquent anecdotes to convey the power of art therapy. This text is a welcome overview of the field with enough detail to satisfy the most curious and exacting reader.” - Laurie Wilson, PhD, ATR-BC, Professor Emerita of Art Therapy at New York University, author of Alberto Giacometti: Myth Magic and the Man 

“Rubin’s comprehensive examination of this unique profession provides the overview that I and other therapists need.” - Louis W. Tinnin, MD, Professor Emeritus, West Virginia University, Psychiatric Consultant, Intensive Trauma Therapy, Inc. <www.traumatherapy.us>

I'm about halfway throught this text and so far it's been a good introduction to what Art Therapy is all about. The DVD that's included doesn't add much to the text. I find some of the clips are too short or of poor quality.

Judith Rubin is a well known amazing art therapist, but her clear understanding in writing of this book allows the reader to understand her definitions and experiences as well as make their own connections. I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the field of art therapy, or anyone looking to apply to an art therapy program.

I bought the Kindle version. The information is helpful, not very in depth, more about breadth. It also keeps talking about the DVD, but I have the Kindle version and I don't think I received that with it. :(
