How art therapy can transform rehabilitation after brain injury or life with a neurological condition.

By creating a therapeutic outlet for self-expression and processing trauma, art therapy can play a powerful role in assisting people with a brain injury or neurological condition to adjust to living with altered abilities and ways of thinking. Bringing together a wealth of expertise from specialists working with a range of conditions including epilepsy, dementia, acquired brain injury, motor neurone disease and multiple sclerosis, this book describes both the effects of the conditions and the ways in which art therapy has helped in the rehabilitation process. The book includes work with groups and individuals and with a wide range of settings and age groups, from children to older adults, and discusses the implications of research from neuroscience and neuropsychology. This will be essential reading for art therapists and students working with neurological conditions. Other professionals working with people with neurological conditions such as psychotherapists and counsellors, doctors, nurses and complementary therapists will also find it of interest.

Art Therapy with Physical Conditions Edited by Marian Liebmann and Sally Weston Foreword by Trevor Thompson MAY 2015 // pb // 320pp // p-9781849053495 // e-9780857009111 // $39.95 // ÂŁ24.99

How art therapy can support adults with chronic or terminal illness and life-limiting conditions.

As the emotional components of physical illnesses become more recognised, there is a renewed interest in the potential of art therapy to help patients come to terms with injury, pain and terminal and life-long conditions. A wide range of experienced art therapists describe their work and its benefits to a variety of groups including those with cancer, debilitating conditions such as myalgic encephalopathy (M.E.) and ulcerative colitis. Physical conditions in combination with other factors such as homelessness or learning disabilities, and children with life-long and chronic conditions are also covered. The book includes discussion of spiritual and philosophical issues when mortality is faced, life change and adjustment issues, practical considerations and which models of practice art therapists find most helpful with various groups. This will be essential reading for arts therapists and students, as well as for professionals with an interest in psychological issues and wellbeing for patients with physical illness or long term conditions, such as psychotherapists and counsellors, complementary therapists, doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals.


A very broad ranging discussion of the subject and, as promised in the preface, going far beyond the known areas that art therapy is usually associated with.

A practical guide to integrating art therapy-based and yoga therapy-based techniques in clinical practice to enhance therapeutic outcomes.

This dynamic approach to therapy combines yoga and art to heal the whole person - body, mind and spirit - through the use of intention. In this practical guide art therapists will learn how to incorporate yoga poses, mudras and meditation, and yoga therapists to introduce art directives, into individual and group clinical work for a more holistic healing process. Readers will discover the parallels that exist between the two modalities, and how to use a specific intention as a framework for structuring sessions, with the aim of reaching a deeper level of healing in their clinical work. Guidelines for staying within each modality’s scope of practice and working ethically are included, as well as an extensive Practice Chart, which shows how to match treatment concerns with an intention, mudra meditation, yoga poses and art activity. Ideal for art therapists looking to expand and enhance their practice, this book will also appeal to yoga therapists and teachers with an interest in art-based techniques. Although primarily meant for therapists, it is also accessible for individuals looking for self-improvement.

Karen Gibbons skilfully navigates the complex blending of art therapy and yoga with professionalism, ethical clarity and reflective deliberation. For all art therapists wishing to complement their art therapy practice, this book is a practical and invaluable guide to aid in enhancing the mind body connection found in both yoga and the creative art process.

New approach to treating depression combining art therapy and Jungian psychology.

Laying out a new integrative approach to the treatment of depression, this book looks at the biological, psychological, social and spiritual dimensions of clinical art therapy.

Finally the author lays out her research methodology and discusses the possible implications of the integrative art therapy approach. This revolutionary approach, which places equal importance on both art therapy and psychology in the treatment of depression, will be a valuable resource for all art therapists and students working with clients and patients who suffer from depression. Psychologists, psychotherapists, counsellors and other mental health professionals will also find it of interest.

Play and Art in Child Psychotherapy An Expressive Arts Therapy Approach Ellen G. Levine DEC 2014 // pb // 288pp // p-9781849055048 // e-9780857009197 // $39.95 // £24.99

A look at how art-making and imaginary play can provide a space for children to metabolize their experiences in clinical settings.

Ellen G. Levine draws on her extensive experience in clinical settings to present a series of case studies that demonstrate how art-making and imaginary play can provide a space for children to metabolize their experiences. Each study is followed by an arts-based research discussion of the themes that emerged in the clinical sessions and the basic principles that were followed in the work with the child or family. The model of expressive arts therapy is used to explore the questions that arise from the cases, which range from issues of war trauma, to anger, grief, and the impact of mental illness in the family. This comprehensive guide to the use of play and art in working with children and parents will be of interest to students and practitioners in the fields of expressive arts therapy and psychotherapy, in addition to anyone working with children in disciplines such as psychology, social work and psychiatry.

This superbly crafted book is a gem! It is Levine’s gift to the profession, culled from her many years of experience as a therapist, artist, educator, and researcher. Through her engaging, accessible style of writing, she brings to life an aesthetic approach to therapy and research that is profoundly respectful of children and families, and that honors the potential of the arts to access individual and collective resilience.

4 # Professional Development Challenging Stress, Burnout and Rust-Out Finding Balance in Busy Lives Teena J. Clouston JUL 2015 // pb // 208pp // p-9781849054065 // e-9780857007865 // $27.95 // £16.99

Practical tools and techniques to find life balance and wellbeing at individual, family and community levels.

A balanced lifestyle enhances health, happiness and wellbeing. With practical techniques and strategies, this book explores how this balance can be found and how stress and anxiety, which are linked to being overworked and over busy, may be alleviated. It begins by examining the state of work-life imbalance in our everyday lives and discussing real life examples from a group of professionals working in health and social care. Their stories and experiences illustrate the problems caused by our modern, work-driven society and resonate with how many of us are living today. The author then provides practical tools and techniques to address this overwork culture and achieve a more balanced lifestyle. These simple, yet effective, strategies can be implemented quickly in everyday life.

In this brilliantly written book, Dr Clouston presents a thought-provoking reconceptualization of the notion of occupational balance. She argues that living a balanced life means resisting the neoliberal capitalistic pressure to value “doing” over other aspects of life, and instead pursuing personally meaningful occupations that enable “doing, being, becoming, and belonging”. This is a must-read textbook for anyone who is interested in ideas about meaningful living through focused engagement in valued occupations. Moses N. Ikiugu, PhD, OTR/L, Professor and Director of Research, Occupational Therapy, University of South Dakota

Video Enhanced Reflective Practice Professional Development through Attuned Interactions Edited by Hilary Kennedy, Miriam Landor and Liz Todd APR 2015 // pb // 336pp // p-9781849054102 // e-9780857007872 // $49.95 // £24.99

The first book on Video Enhanced Reflective Practice.

Video Enhanced Reflective Practice (VERP), an application of Video Interaction Guidance, supports individuals or groups to reflect on and develop their professional communication, teaching or therapeutic skills with their clients through shared review of moments of attuned interaction in video clips of their day-to-day practice. This book brings together international researchers and practitioners from a range of professions to define VERP, present its theoretical basis and review the current research evidence. Increasing in popularity, VERP is used as a reflective professional development tool for a wide range of professionals and employees, supporting them to analyse and reflect on moments of their effective interaction on video, in situ in the professional environment. The VERP approach is optimistic and empowering, focusing on strength and potential rather than problems or weaknesses.

Dr. Alfred J. Malinowski’s book provides a comprehensive resource on self-care for those working in the field of psychotherapy.

He explores the impact this can have and, through an examination of the latest research, reiterates the importance of the self-care of the practitioner. He presents a number of self-care techniques and strategies and explains how they can be applied to maintain psychological, spiritual, physical and social well-being. A final section explores the need for additional training for psychotherapists in the area of the hazards and self-care, both in graduate courses for future clinicians and to help experienced therapists continue learning and practicing self-care principles in their daily lives.

This is a wonderful supplementary text for ethics, practicum, and internship courses in mental health fields. It discusses many of the problems our professions face and some good potential solutions. As a practicing Counseling Psychologist for over 30 years, I have learned many of these lessons through the school of hard knocks. I wish I had had a book like this when I was in school. As a professor teaching counseling and psychology courses over the last 30 years, I wish I had had a book like this for my students. David P.

Offering theoretical grounding and practical techniques that demonstrate the profound therapeutic impact deep play can produce in work with children

Therapeutic deep play has the capacity for children to express deep emotions, overcome seemingly insurmountable issues and resolve serious problems. Working with children in this profound way, therapists are able to not only eliminate symptoms, but to change the very structure of how children live with themselves, their defense and belief systems. The contributors to this book all work deeply, allowing children to take risks in a safe environment, and become fully absorbed in physical play. Chapters include play with deep sandboxes, clay, water, and various objects, and look at a range of pertinent case studies to demonstrate the therapeutic techniques in practice, alongside the theoretical concepts in which they are grounded. A new theoretical approach is established that takes from psychoanalysis as well as neuroscience and behaviourism, and offers a depth psychology approach in the treatment of children. This will be a valuable resource for anyone working therapeutically with children through play, including play therapists, psychotherapists, psychologists, arts therapists, counsellors, social workers and family therapists.

Challenging our ideas about forgiveness.

Examining themes of forgiveness, reconciliation and conflict transformation, this book brings together the personal testimonies of both survivors and perpetrators of crime and violence and asks the question whether forgiveness may have more currency than revenge in an age which seems locked into the cycle of conflict. The powerful real life stories collected by The Forgiveness Project come from ordinary people around the world in a diverse range of situations, including those who have transformed aggression into a driving force for peace. Raising the possibility of alternatives to resentment, retaliation and revenge, each story shows the very real impact of forgiveness (or lack of forgiveness) within a particular context, provoking questions such as ‘what is forgiveness?’, ‘how can you respond to the unforgivable?’ and ‘can you move on without forgiveness?’ Marina Cantacuzino’s challenging, reflective introductory essay sets the stories in the larger context of approaches to forgiveness, from both religious and secular viewpoints, concluding that in the reality of lived experience forgiveness has a quality `as mysterious as love’. Using real stories of victims and perpetrators, the charity sets out to explore concepts of forgiveness and conflict resolution in order to humanise the ‘other’, foster resilient relationships and help to dissolve tension. All royalties from the sale of this book will go to The Forgiveness Project.

This reassuring and uplifting book testifies to the truth of forgiveness - freestanding, not dependent upon faith, but upon humanity. It is both provocative and full of hope. Jon Snow, journalist and presenter
