5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Resource March 1 2008
By Adriann Downes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The author does a wonderful job of listing projects and exercises that can be used 1:1 or in groups. The writing is concise and informative; crucial for those of us who don't have the time to filter through a lot of rhetoric to find useful and meaningful material. The projects utilize a variety of mediums, but remain cost effective. Great for opening up a dialogue on a variety of subjects, and has proven invaluable for my clients with schizophrenia (especially the group projects.) Highly recommended!

I LOVE this book. The entire book is FULL of different art directives and activities to use with students/clients. Almost everything can be easily adapted to suit people of all ages. I am currently planning a group for teenage girls and all of the planned directives have been adapted from this book. This is really a wonderful book to own for anyone interested in Art Therapy!
