Just as the universe provides light and heat from the sun in order for life to survive and flourish on our planet, the universe also provides the basic energy out of which everything has come into existence, and from which our further development can proceed. We have always had the tools for transformation within our grasp, and the fuel, the energy that feeds the process, is as open to us as the air we breathe. All things that come into existence are formed from this energy, which of itself cannot be seen, but which can be accessed, entered into and physically felt. In its various forms, it provides the very substance out of which the material universe has come into being. It is in fact everything that ever was, everything that is, everything that will ever be. In one for it is the body you inhabit, in another the thoughts that come bidden and unbiddeninto your mind. It is the substance of life, the energy of the universe, the life force. This energy itself is the connection for which we seek.

This exciting text is a comprehensive work that examines the use of art, play, music, dance/movement, and drama in different cultures and with diverse client populations. The editors’ primary purpose is to explore how the creative therapies can be implemented in diverse cultures and in different countries. Renowned, well-credentialed, and professional creative arts therapists in the areas of art, play, music, dance/movement, and drama helped write this collection. Examples include the use of art in working with refugee children in Australia and with Chinese-American children; shared experiences in using dance and movement with Arabic women in Jerusalem, indigenous Inner Mongolia, and with survivors of torture. Other chapters offer stories of using drama in the Netherlands, music and other creative arts in China, play therapy in Appalachia and with different races. Additionally, there are chapters on working with children with learning disabilities as well as the use of creative arts in supervision. Some of the chapters are beautifully complimented with photographs of client works of art or play. The text provides a rich tapestry on how the creative therapies can be used across cultures for issues such as depression and trauma to name a few. Of special interest are the chapters on supervision. Not only a tool for creative art therapists, this informative book will be of special interest to educators, students, therapists, as well as people working in other parts of the world or with culturally diverse clients.
