Review

As someone who views art-making as a force of Nature and the arts therapies as a contemporary manifestation of ancient shamanic practices, I welcome The Healing Forest in Post-Crisis Work with Children with enthusiasm. It will help heal people and the world too. --Shaun McNiff, University Professor, Lesley University, and author of Art Heals and Art as Medicine

The Healing Forest in Post-Crisis Work with Children combines theory, practice and research in an accessible and highly readable manner. It is essential reading for anyone looking for new ideas about how to work in a creative, gentle way with children who have experienced trauma. I also warmly recommend this book to any counsellor or psychotherapist who is interested in the potential of using the outdoor environment as part of the therapeutic process --John McLeod, Emeritus Professor of Counselling, University of Abertay, Scotland and Professor, Department of Psychology, University of Oslo

Review

Nature therapy is an innovative approach that has been shown to help children who have experience a variety of difficulties including violence, death, parental divorce and natural disaster... It is intended for children between 5 and 10 years old, however it could be adapted for younger children, adolescents and adults... The text is presented in a clear and accessible manner and offers a very detailed nature therapy program. The program may be of interest to therapists, counsellors and teachers who are interested in the theory behind nature therapy and integrating the program within their setting. (Play for Life)

This book is an invaluable resource for educators and clinicians who work with children under duress. It provides an artful synthesis of trauma theory and nature therapy applications for use with children in classroom and natural environments. Hands-on tools and exercises offer a practical guide for facilitators to create "safe spaces" for children. (Vivien Marcow Speiser PhD, BC-DMT, LMHC, NCC, REAT, Professor and Director, The Institute for Arts and Health and National, International and Collaborative Programs, The Graduate School of Arts and Social Sciences, Lesley University)

The Healing Forest in Post-Crisis Work with Children is an important book in the development of educational and therapeutic work with children and nature. Clearly written with a strong rationale and plenty of practical ideas, is accessible and attractive. I would like it to be sent to Ministers of Education in as many countries as possible!

(John McLeod, Emeritus Professor of Counselling, University of Abertay, Scotland and Professor, Department of Psychology, University of Oslo)

This is a practical guide book aimed at (as it states) 'therapists, counsellors, teachers and parents; in fact anyone working with children, at any stage of difficulty'... It is a concise easy to read publication, written in a very clean practical style. The author guides the reader through a rich journey from trauma to enlightenment, while offering step by step strategies for the facilitator to prepare and present this creative and expressive intervention... This book is an invaluable resource providing a comprehensive tool kit. In my opinion it would adequately hold and guide any professional wanting to develop creative group interventions, to nurture and support children feeling disempowered, vulnerable and frightened by traumatic life experience. (Lorraine Finnegan, BAPT member BAPT - Play Therapy)
