“The book has a rich collection of black-and-white sketches that are worth the price of the book on its own merit. They speak when words fail....The book has good reference information, organized by chapters.”

Illness, Crisis and Loss (on the first edition)


“I would recommend this well-researched and well-informed book to therapists working in schools with children of displaced, disenfranchised survivors of war and disaster and those working with families around the world who are struggling to make sense of their traumatizing experiences....This book is packed with suggested activities for therapists to help restore the child's sense of safety and ability to function creatively and spontaneously.”

Child and Adolescent Mental Health (on the first edition)


“The book is well structured and each chapter offers the reader a deeper understanding of specific creative applications and useful interventions for working with traumatized children, families, and groups....I found Malchiodi's presentation of the neurobiological effects of trauma to be an exciting introduction to new ways of looking at trauma work with children. It serves as a foundation for the important and moving work described by the contributing authors and sets the tone for the book.”

Art Therapy (on the first edition)


“As understanding has increased of neurobiology and sensory processes in trauma, so has the need for practitioners to develop skills in the use of creative arts and expressive therapies for treatment. This well-written volume offers both breadth and depth, while providing flexible and developmentally friendly treatment approaches that are client-focused and driven by individual and family needs relating to trauma. Compelling case examples bring these approaches to life. I highly recommend this work to all practitioners who work with children and families living with trauma in its many forms. It’s a wonderful book!”
