Overview

In this treatise, Doctor Horovitz shares a wealth of therapeutic tales and techniques. At the end of each chapter, Doctor Horovitz offers practical suggestions in exercise format. This is followed by a section where the reader can respond, via art making, journaling, and/or discussion. It will be of special interest to professional art therapists, educators, counselors, psychologists, psychiatrists, speech language therapists, social workers, and students. Witnessing the restoration of the client's spiritual, emotional, and developmental issues is pinnacle for recovery. At the end of each parable are practical suggestions in exercise format. This is followed by a space where the reader can respond using this as a workbook and reflective guide, which is its exact intent. As well, it can be used as a supervisory book in the classroom. And perchance if there is a lone therapist who prefers to walk this path singularly, it can serve as a companion guide. Verily, it raises more questions than it answers, which is precisely the point: it envelops the numinous and the sacred. The reader will note how Doctor Horovitz avoids "cookbook" directives that counteract therapeutic recovery. Instead what is modeled is authentic expression and exploration of intrinsic goals under the gentle guidance of this therapist/educator.
