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
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.
