"I believe the market for this book would be growing and that there is a trend toward 'family therapy' as a treatment modality in general. My reaction is very positive to both the proposed idea and the sample chapter. The varied theoretical approaches on which the art interventions are based are quite appealing; there is definitely a place for clear integrated technique with theory. [It is] timely in that there is a void of family therapy volumes in art therapy and a lack of integrated or original work in family therapy literature. Writing style and level is excellent for masters, certificate, and doctoral level practitioners. I recommend the book for publication. I would use the book as an illustrative tool for techniques and intervention in family therapy."- Abby Calisch, Psy.D., LPC, ATR-BC, Professor, Argosy University - Texas School of Professional Psychology"Table of contents is well organized. Introduction is excellent. It is filled with information that has not been previously offered in a single text. I am not aware of any book that has theoretically covered Adlerian, Psychoanalytic, Bowenian, Structural, and Experiential Family Therapy with their use in family art therapy. Art therapists and students working towards a degree would find this book of value. In addition, social workers and psychology students and professionals will use Family Art Therapy as a supplement to their other texts. I am not aware of a text that offers the method in which art therapy is wed to the various theories and explains the art therapy process plus the meaning behind the art products. The material in this text is and always will be timely. Family therapy is recognized by most health insurance companies and art therapy is an important dimension to this treatment."- Helen B. Landgarten, DAT, ATR-HLM, MFT, Professor Emeritus, author, Family Art Psychotherapy
