Library Journal
Art therapy is a way to increase self-knowledge and creativity and a tool for dealing with trauma and other life difficulties. French art therapist Batlle offers an introduction to art therapy and methods for using it to enhance life. She explains the difference between art and art therapy: the former is self-expression and creativity shared with the world, while the latter is personal and used for self-improvement and coping with problems. She also explains how art therapists work with clients to interpret their work and use it for personal growth. The last part of the book covers various art forms and how they may be used therapeutically. Those interested in experimenting may choose an art form that suits them: painting, sculpture, dance, theater, music, and writing are all tools for art therapy. Batlle notes that people interested in trying art therapy on their own may do so if they are not dealing with personal trauma or mental illness. A list of web sites for European art therapy associations offers further information, which are not very useful to Hispanics in the United States. This book will interest those who want to incorporate art therapy into their self-help regime.—Barbara M.
