“A welcome addition to the art therapy literature....A useful reference and a readable, interesting book to browse.”

Psychiatric Services

“This extraordinary volume is packed with state-of-the-art research and wisdom from renowned practitioners. Like the first edition, it will be a 'must read' for years to come for graduate students and practitioners in art therapy and allied fields, and for any therapist who uses art expression in clinical work. It is clinician friendly and eminently useful.”

—David A. Crenshaw, PhD, ABPP, RPT-S, Rhinebeck Child and Family Center, Rhinebeck, New York

“An essential, integrative tool for introducing new art therapists and other human service professionals to the field of art therapy—and a terrific resource for experienced practitioners as well. Malchiodi and her contributing authors describe 'what art therapy is' in a clear and direct manner and provide meaningful applications of theory to practice. The volume demonstrates how art therapy actually works to provide psychological aid to a wide range of clients, from children in crisis to combat veterans. New coverage of technology and other topics brings the second edition up to date for this decade and beyond. I look forward to using this handbook as a text in my undergraduate and graduate courses.”

—Julia Byers, EdD, Division of Expressive Therapies, Lesley University

“This is one of those rare second editions that achieve much more than an update of the literature, expanding and enriching a work that already has proven to be a classic. The Handbook is not only a wonderful introduction for students and novice practitioners, it is also a valuable tool for seasoned therapists. Malchiodi and other luminaries in the field generously share their research findings, practical expertise, and clinical wisdom. This volume is a valuable addition to any art therapist’s library. I highly recommend it.”

—Lennis G. Echterling, PhD, Department of Graduate Psychology, James Madison University
