Reviews and Endorsements

"To say this publication is timely would be a gross understatement. From theory to research to application, Dr. Pike reminds us-- in her deft, clear and at times lyrical manner-how to overcome the struggles and limitations of our artificial experiences by looking outside, metaphorically and literally, to find the most natural space and mindful tools available. Eco-art therapy is more than a method or approach; it's a whole new paradigm that simultaneously simplifies and makes profound the journey towards wellness. Quite frankly, I didn't realize this was a book that I needed to read...until I read it." - Dave Gussak, PhD, ATR-BC, professor, The Florida State University.

"Eco-Art Therapy in Practice offers a unique, eco-friendly approach to merging the healing properties of nature with art therapy. Dr. Pike's easy to follow protocols teach us a simpler, more organic way of relating to life within the field of a psychotherapy." - Ella Dufrene, MPS, ATR, founder of Madre Tierra Creative Arts & Yoga Retreats.

''Working in both a private practice and an agency setting requires me to be flexible and continue to adapt my interventions for a wide range of clients. Dr. Pike's expansive knowledge is evident, and this book is one I will return to repeatedly to help meet my client's diverse needs! Using nature in art making has a lot of therapeutic potential. - Devon Schlegel, MA, ATR-BC, LPC, LMHC, co-founder of Indigo Art Therapy Studio.
