Liesl Silverstone offers a variety of exercises for a diverse and multicultural client base, such as guided fantasies, one-to-one and group work focusing on the group dynamic, and some examples of working with adults with learning difficulties and children.
Art Therapy Exercises is an invaluable book for art therapists and art therapy students, counsellors, psychotherapists and all professionals working in the field of human development.
'Liesl Silverstone's new book…is the outcome of a personal and professional life dedicated to the celebration of the imagination and to an unshakeable belief in the resilience of the human spirit …readers will find a veritable cornucopia of exercises which have the potential to open up new vistas and to inspire imaginative journeys of great richness… Simply to read them is itself a voyage of discovery but for many trainers and therapists they will constitute a repertoire on which they can draw as from an inexhaustible well.'
