Reviews and Endorsements

Part I establishes a theoretical base, introducing innovations in practice and addressing complex clinical issues in child and adult work. Topics include the narrative of imagery in supervision, enchantment, ambivalence, a topographical approach, engagement in supervision, and working with the network in art psychotherapy with children. Part II focuses on supervision in groups addressing training, difference and peer group image consultation, as well as supervision of experienced practitioners. Part III explores theory related to purposes and challenges in supervision and research.A vital contribution to the literature in the context of Continuing Professional Development, this volume establishes the image as central in the supervision of art psychotherapists. It brings the experience of the artist in the psychotherapist into the frame, provoking questions about the meaning of images and image making in supervision.
