As an experienced clinician/psychologist who has just started classes for a certificate in
art therapy, I found this little book to be a terrific compilation of introductory information
on art therapy. The book lives up to its' SOURCEBOOK title. The over-view of the subject is
artfully written, easy to read and the resources are great for the beginner in this expanding
field of the art therapies. I think that all clinical,mental health service providers would
benefit from reading this book as they strive to offer treatment alternatives for their clients.
If mental health practitioners did more exploring of alternative non-verbal ways into the mind
of their clients, while sharing discoveries with their clients, we might all think more of taking
our clients off of drugs and offering them art, music, theater, dance as ways to work through
their difficulties. I URGE ALL CLINICAL MENTAL HEALTH WORKERS TO CONSIDER WHAT THIS BOOK HAS
TO OFFER.
Art and music and dance all awaken the sleeping/suffering brain and we must take responsibility for
introducing them to ourselves and our clients as ways we already have in us to create more peaceful, less
stressful and more enlightened ways of bringing wellness to our daily lives.

As a first time reader of what art Therapy is about, I found the Art Therapy Sourcebook an easy and comprehensive read. The illustrations and examples are meaningful and the exercises are great. I had once lost the enthusiasm to draw, through reading this book and following the exercises I have created my own creative journal, I find myself immersed in the freedom of drawing once again. For those that are interested in training as an Art Therapist or just taking some Art Therapy for themselves, there is a list of organisations and their contact details at the back of the book as well as some practical advice about qualifying to become an Art Therapist.

I was excited to read this book based on all the good reviews but I was disappointed. It's very repetitive and is really meant for someone who knows nothing about art. I might have enjoyed this book if I was a "non artist", like the author calls it, but if you're already experienced in art and hoping to get a good list of activities it is not the book for you.

This is an informative book for Art Therapists or those interested in learning more about Art Therapy. It is written in a easy, readable manner. I am an Art Therapist and I used it a lot when doing research for a presentation and found it very helpful.
