Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Expressive therapy promotes children's capacity to heal from early trauma by helping them process painful experiences over time at progressively more mature levels of understanding. Relying on excellent coping skills that have helped them survive, children in therapy are often invested in not talking due to the highly defended nature of their problems, or perhaps the need to protect a parent through silence. Alternative means of expression are often necessary. Dr. Klorer's work allows children to communicate intense feelings in ways that are natural to them, through art and play, not solely by verbalization.

Synopsis:

This book is organized from a developmental perspective. At each stage of development, the child's issues are presented through his creative expressions and enacted symbolically through the repetition of themes, independently of his conscious awareness of them. As the child grows and matures, these troubling issues can be approached at new levels of understanding that may have eluded him previously. The therapist's job is to help find the reparative path by means of the creative process.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [267]-274) and index.
