""Art Therapy with Children: From Infancy to Adolescence" takes the reader through the child's development by describing the specialist work of the art therapist in each developmental stage. This passionate and exciting book demonstrates the wide theoretical base of art therapy presenting new areas of clinical practice. New to the literature is innovative work with mothers and babies, a study of the sibling bond in looked after children, trans-generational work in kinship fostering, gender disorder and multi-family work with anorexic young people. The detail of clinical process brings alive the significance of the relationship between the art therapist, child and the art forms made. More general topics include: the value of art for the pre-verbal child; the preventative role of art therapy in schools; the development of imagination in 'hard to reach' and dyspraxic children; and the importance of working with the family and professional network in the different settings of health, social services, education and voluntary sector. "Art Therapy with Children: From Infancy to Adolescence" will inspire the student, encourage the clinician and interest an international readership of all professionals working with children and young people."--Page 4 of cover.
