Reviews

'Moon's book is a welcome addition to the literature on the use of materials within art therapy. It will provoke more thought, reflection, and writing about the characteristics of different art materials and their potential impact on art therapy processes.' - Susan Hogan, Professor, Cultural Studies and Art Therapy, School of Social Care and Therapeutic Practice, University of Derby, United Kingdom

'Materials and Media in Art Therapy introduces a model for clinical effectiveness and psychological understanding that is based on the varied medicines of art making. It is an authoritative and innovative text that will guide our discipline toward a more sensitive engagement of the needs, interests, and expressive abilities of the people we serve.' - Shaun McNiff, PhD, University Professor, Lesley University, Cambridge, Massachusetts; Author, Art Heals, Art as Medicine, Art-Based Research, Integrating the Arts in Therapy

'This book breaks new ground with a scholarly and philosophical approach that places art therapy squarely in the contemporary discourse of postmodern thought. Cathy Moon and her contributors challenge us to examine our aesthetic sensibilities toward materials, making this an essential reading for students and experienced practitioners seeking to push the boundaries of art therapy.' - Patricia Allen, PhD, ATR, HLM, Adjunct Associate Professor, School of the Art Institute of Chicago; Author, Art Is a Way of Knowing, Art Is a Spiritual Path
