Overview

Tales and techniques from Horovitz's practice explain her way of co-creating what she calls "soulutions" with clients. The narrative, told in a personal and direct way and illustrated in b&w, begins by describing Horovitz's early experiences as an art therapy intern working with psychotic patients on the back wards of a psychiatric hospital. She then relates the cases of a number of wounded and disturbed people who have been helped by the act of creativity. Each chapter sums up with a conclusion and practical exercises. Horovitz (graduate art therapy, Nazareth College, Rochester, NY) is also the author of A Leap of Faith: The Call to Art. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
