I really want this own this book. I ended up taking a ton of notes and numerous tools to add to art therapy sessions with clients. There are wonderful case studies and progressions of how art can heal. I highly recommend this to anyone in the mental health field and to encourage them to use art with any of their clients. It can really open up a whole new avenue of understanding.

Great sequel to the Art Therapy Source Book. Goes into greater details about specific emperically proven instruments to measure the artwork of clients. Chapters are devoted to forms of art, and art making that can be used with specific populations. I come back to this book often when I'm utilizing therapeutic art activities with the children and teens I work with.
Informative and accessible.
