Some 80 tested exercises come with guidlines for their application, making ART THERAPY EXERCISES; INSPIRATIONAL AND PRACTICAL IDEAS TO STIMULATE THE IMAGINATION a key acquisition for health collections and parents and therapists alike. Here are exercises for a varied and multicultural client base from guided fantasies to group work focusing on group dynamics, offering non-directive, non-interpretive person-centered guidelines any can readily follow. Very highly recommended. -- The Midwest Book Review
The novice [play therapist] would receive some excellent stimulus material and guidance, whilst the experienced practitioner may reconsider some of the exercises in a new light and reflect on their value in supervisory or training settings. -- Play for Life
Liesl Silverstone's new book is the outcome of a personal and professional life dedicated to the celebration of the imagination and to an unshakeable belief in the resilience of the human spirit... readers will find a veritable cornucopia of exercises which have the potential to open up new vistas and to inspire imaginative journeys of great richness. Simply to read them is itself a voyage of discovery but for many trainers and therapists they will constitute a repertoire on which they can draw as from an inexhaustible well. -- Brian Thorne, Emeritus Professor of Counselling, University of East Anglia.
