Worth it This book has inspired me to want to become an art therapist even though I am a school teacher. Art can really help those kids who are suffering and this book has great ideas that you can use depending on the circumstances.

Just okay, but probably not a go-to for me. I bought this book hoping to use it in my individual practice with ages from kids to adults. Sadly, most of the activities are more suited to group therapy. In addition, many of the activities are centered around drawing and I find this to be a barrier with a lot of clients because they get stuck with the judgement that they are not artistic enough. I probably won’t be turning to this book as after as I thought.

Good buy This is a great resource to add some variety to your current therapy practices. I’ve already used several activities in group therapy with adults.
