"Silver's new book is an indispensable resource for all art therapists, as well anyone who works with at-risk youth. This is an exceptional reworking of her earlier work and includes new research, a wealth of applications in a range of settings, and a dynamic synthesis of Silver's lifework." - Donna Kaiser, Director of the Graduate Art Therapy Program, Albertus Magnus College, USA
"This new book, which constitutes a compilation of major work by this brilliant author, is stunning in its scope. These assessment methods and research studies offer a unique and balanced blend of art and science that affords an understanding of both individual and universal elements of human emotion and cognition." - Annette Shore, Marylhurst University, Graduate Program in Art Therapy Counseling, USA
"This book is an extraordinary accomplishment! Rawley Silver's tools for identifying, assessing, and supporting children and adolescents at risk for violent behavior are a model for combining quantitative findings with qualitative analysis. The sum total translates into assessments that will prove useful to classroom teachers, art therapists, psychologists, and other clinicians. I highly recommend this volume." - Amy Ione, author of Innovation and Visualization: Trajectories, Strategies, and Myths
"This is an exceptionally rich and useful book that is on the cutting edge of art therapy quantitative and qualitative research. In this complete and comprehensive book, Silver shares the best of her work thus far. I strongly recommend it be added to every professional library." - Patricia St. John, Immediate past-chair of the AATA Research Committee and Program Coordinator for the graduate art therapy programs at the College of New Rochelle, USA
"[T]he Silver Drawing Test and Draw a Story is a great starting place to get ideas, get stimulated, and get busy finding out what it takes to become a thorough clinician/researcher....any ethical therapist looking at artwork and making assumptions based on projected content needs to keep abreast of empirical findings. You would do well to add this book to your library."
-Diana Millia MA, LCAT, ATR-BC, in The Arts in Psychotherapy, Jan. 2008, 35(4) 296-7
