Of the various books I have about art therapy-therapy in the widest sense-this is the one I go back to most often. It is chock-full of ideas, and you don't feel you need to know complicated techniques or to have expensive art materials to implement them.
Malchiodi explains how to make a "safe box", a self-soothing image journal and a medicine pouch or bag, as well as giving lots of ideas for collages, paintings, journals, etc. etc. She also covers issues such as your personal history as an artist-"Every child is an artist," Picasso said- inner critics and outer critics, the artist's need for their own space, also how art can be made in communal settings and as a force for healing within communities as well as for the individual. She is an experienced art therapist and really does know what she is talking about.
I really can't fault this book. It is well-written, not preachy, not psychobabbly, not full of New Age jargon (or any other kind), and could equally well inspire a complete beginner and a professional artist. It is also a paperback, therefore easy to carry about with you.
