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>

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'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.

While this was a comprehensive book when first presented, in a few short years its contents have become quite dated in both language and viewpoints. The author makes a series of generalizations throughout the volume. Some are helpful, but most are very referential to a certain Western way of thinking. Mostly it seems to refer to one professional organization's politics in defining the field, so the book is fine for those who appreciate a US perspective which is limited.

The DVD adds little to the book so if you purchase Kindle and do not get a copy, you are not missing anything critical. The film clips are like the author's writing, which is a series of statements rather than a clear vision for what art therapy is in action. This is really a large reference book that was good in 2009, but now has become historic as so many things have changed in mental health and health care.

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. :(
