Reviews

This is a simply written, humorous and enlightening introduction to art therapy. The author gives the reader insight using real life cases, as well as her own sometimes painful reactions while working alongside the client. Overall the book demonstrates the importance of getting to know the client in a counselling relationship. This enables a person to trust and feel secure, something missing from many young people's everyday relationships. I will keep this book in my tool bag, to dip into when working with young people, as it offers a new way of working that is appropriate, inclusive and manageable in the normal counselling process. -- Relate
