About the Author

Carmen Richardson, MSW, RSW, RCAT, REAT, is a registered clinician spanning three professions: clinical social work, art therapy, and expressive arts therapy. She is the founder and director of Prairie Institute of Expressive Arts Therapy (PIEAT), where she develops professional trainings for facilitators and therapists in the field of expressive arts. She has maintained a full time private practice in Calgary for over 19 years and provides clinical supervision for social workers, art therapists and expressive arts therapists.


"A wealth of interventions can be used during this programme. I particularly lik the Stop, Slow, Go cards within phase two that clients can select and show to the therapist if they sense their trauma being 'triggered', and the jigsaw pieces indicating different asepcts of the client's trauma, which can be stored in decorated boxes until they are ready to work through them. I can see a use for them in s everal other therapeutic settings...this is a 'solid book' with a wealth of useful information." - Eileen Wilson, Private Practice

"Richardson's text is both concrete and inspired. Her trauma-recovery program, evidence based and developmentally sound, skillfully reintegrates mind/dody connection through process-oriented art making. Well done." - Elizabeth Graves, PhD, assistant professor, counselor educator, and director of the professional school counseling program at Appalachian State University

"The sensory experience is an integral aspect of storytelling that is missed in many therapeutic languages. This book illuminates how enriching therapy can be when memories are expressed not only verbally but also through images, sounds, and movement. Richardson captures the power of creative arts and how they can be utilized, especially when sharing can be challenging and painful. An invaluable resource not only because it has amazing examples of how to integrate the arts, but also as a way for the reader to instantly gain an entire portfolio of interventions!"- Cassandra F. Goodman, licensed professional clinical counselor and art therapist at Levine, Risen, and Associates
