In presenting this remarkably original and lucid interpretive account of Art Therapy in a community of emotionally disturbed boys, the author through her rare facility with verbal as well as visual media, has herself accomplished a highly creative communication which actively involves the reader in moving and vivid experience. I would expect this book to appeal to a wide range of readers beyond those immediately concerned with Art Therapy because of the breadth as well as depth of Miss Kramer's approach. Throughout her exposition she moves freely from the theoretical to the practical and back again, livening and documenting her generalizations with case material, and deriving general principles from specific clinical evidence. She keeps in view both the larger social perspectives and the individual minutiae of the complex processes--artistic, educational, developmental, intrapsychic and interpersonal--of which Art Therapy is a composite"--Introduction.
