Love, Desire and Teen Spirit: Reflections on the Dynamic Force of Adolescent Eros - Joolz McLay
In this book art psychotherapist Joolz McLay offers a courageous personal exploration of the contained forces of Eros that often underlie effective therapeutic relationship and healing. Its honesty about the therapists response to the person in the room refreshingly embraces what most "case studies" leave out.
'This enchanting book vividly conveys the gift of art psychotherapy when, on those rare and profoundly moving occasions, two people meet, touch deeply, and then move on. Both are changed by the experience. Illustrated with pictures and illuminated by myth, it offers insight into an intimate and life enhancing journey. A delightful and compelling read.'
