Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'Essential in this book is the role of art and art therapy to help individuals, families and communities to express and to shape their experiences with political violence and enable them to share these with others... this book is certainly recommended to art therapists, artists and psychotherapists and other professionals within or outside Mental Health Care, working with survivors of political violence.' - Karin Schouten, Tijdschrift voor Creatieve Therapie

‘It is impossible to do justice to this book. As the art therapists are mostly breaking new ground, they write with freshness of style and content which takes the reader on a fascinating and multi-faceted journey.’Marian Liebmann, International Journal of Art Therapy: Inscape
