Art Therapy and Clinical Neoroscience is a significant achievement and a welcomed and needed addition to the field of art therapy as well as a likely historical marker on the timeline of theoritical shifts within the field...Packed full of material readers interested in learning more about the topic of art therapy and neuroscience will benefit greatly from the assimilation of such a wealth of material collected under one cover. -- Art Therapy: Journal of the American Art Therapy Association, Christopher Belkover, Milwaukee, WI There are ongoing scientific discoveries that support the work we do as art therapists and we need to be aware of them. This unique and novel book has to be part of the library of every practicing art therapist. Use it to map out your clients' journeys or explain to others what you do. I highly recommend it. -- Canadian Art Therapy Journal This book is an outstanding portrait of art therapy, offering a new framework for the clinical practice of art therapy. The text has the potential to increase motivation in the multidisciplinary team and its clients, and to bring enthusiasm, provide stimulus for change and promote innovation in clinical and community settings. -- International Journal of Therapy and Rehabilitation This is an impressive accomplishment Hass-Cohen and Carr and their contributors have blazed a trail for us to follow. Helping professionals who use art would be wise to put on their hiking boots and begin the journey. -- from the Foreword by Frances F. Kaplan
