Description of this Book

Art and play therapy approaches can be used to facilitate healing in traumatized children. Fostering nonverbal, right-brain-to-right-brain communication between the therapist and client promotes the brain's capacity for integration and repair. This book offers a unique perspective on the practical application of neurobiology in clinical practice.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Drawing upon her extensive clinical experience as an art therapist, Linda Chapman has created a wonderful translational work. It is a major challenge but essential to bring complex neurobiological concepts into clinical practice, in order for our field to move forward and optimally help patients. The tightrope between neuroscientific jargon and distorting oversimplifications of translational implementation is hard to walk, but Linda Chapman does it with grace and respect. Highly recommended for anyone working with traumatized children and youth. --Bruce D. Perry, MD, PhD, Senior Fellow, The ChildTrauma Academy; Adjunct Professor, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University
