Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is a beautifully written and wonderfully illustrated book dripping with clinical insights that are sure to help therapists do their work better, not just by imitating elegantly described clinical work but also by understanding a great deal better what they do and why they do it. The book is a triumph of the productive integration of theory and practice in art therapy."
—Peter Fonagy, PhD, FBA, PhD Medical Research Council Fellowship, University College, London

"This is a wonderful book! For those who work therapeutically with children or are interested in doing so, it is a treasure chest of theories, techniques, and art examples relating to children. Although the book takes a point of view, it is broad enough that child therapists of all persuasions have much to gain from keeping it handy in their consulting rooms. And if all this weren’t enough, the many examples with illustrations make it a joy to read!"

—Frances F. Kaplan, MPS, DA, ATR-BC, author of Art, Science, and Art Therapy

"Annette Shore weaves a very sophisticated tapestry of child art expression, attachment theory, and a psychodynamic framework that offers an invaluable help to both students and practitioners. Excellent clinical examples illustrate the merger of theory and practice. This text is sure to be a landmark in art therapy literature."

—Arthur Robbins, EdD, professor emeritus, creative arts therapy, Pratt Institute

"It is a great pleasure to welcome Annette Shore to the small but dedicated group of authors who have written about art therapy with children. Her familiarity with recent literature in psychoanalysis and trauma therapy informs her many clinical vignettes and they, in turn, bring the process alive for the reader."

—Judith A. Rubin, author of Introduction to Art Therapy and Child Art Therapy
