Based firmly on Riley's own work as a licensed art therapist and family counselor, this book reviews contemporary theories on adolescent development and therapy and offers solutions to the treatment of young people. Riley explores ways to use imagery to enhance client-clinician relationships, how to use art-making therapeutically, and how to surmount the challenges involved in using creativity in current mental health practice.
