About this item

A Body-Focused Art Therapy That Will Appeal To Art Therapists, Somatic Experiencings Practitioners, Bodyworkers, Artists, And Mental-Health Professionals

"Healing Trauma with Guided Drawing offers an indispensable guide to help our clients overcome challenges, particularly our younger clients or community members who are hesitant to engage in more traditional `talk' therapy modalities. This integrative, sensorimotor-based art therapy modality offers collaborative tools to awaken insight and intuition; foster focus, calm, resilience, and connection; and facilitate healing and integrate mind, brain, and body."

---Bonnie Goldstein, PhD, founder and director of the Lifespan Psychological Center and training coordinator at the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute

"This accessible and practical book weaves together a wealth of information about ways of working with creative processes and bodily awareness to provide new possibilities of recovery for those affected by trauma and emotional issues. It provides a valuable resource of ideas and theoretical rationale suitable for all levels of experience, from those just embarking on their therapeutic journey, to highly experienced practitioners."

---Amanda Levey, BA, MAAT, ATHR, registered psychologist, program leader of arts therapy at the Whitecliffe College of Arts and Design, New Zealand

"This book is a wonderful merging of depth psychology and contemporary neuroscience theory. The author illustrates the often neglected truth that the brain is a part of the body. Overall, a significant step forward toward conceptualizing art therapy as work of the body as well as the mind."

---Christopher M. Belkofer, PhD, ATR, LPC, director of the graduate art therapy program at Mount Mary University

"Follow the footprints of a master into the realm of psychological healing. A must-read for anyone interested in practicing art therapy."

---Monica Wong, PsyD, clinical psychologist, registered art therapist, and academic director at the Hong Kong Institute for Counselling Professionals
