Book review

Book review The Healing Dance is a heartfelt story of Kathleen Rea's journey to becoming an expressive arts therapist. Her story demonstrates how her practice as an expressive arts therapist promotes growth and transformation not only for her clients but for her own personal healing. Rea was trained at ISIS Canada and the European Graduate School and her methods are informed by her life experiences as a woman, professional dancer, and daughter. She states in her opening pages: “From a wild swan girl, to an image-obsessed ballerina waif, to a guide helping others, I have experienced the healing of hearts and minds” (p. 5).</P>Kathleen Rea endeavors to engage students, practitioners and those interested in the healing power of the arts. By weaving personal life experience with client case examples and theoretical foundations, she has created an emotionally moving and professionally stimulating story. Kathleen Rea captures the true essence of being an expressive arts therapist that will surely resonate with many expressive arts therapists who themselves as artists discovered the healing potency of creating their own dance, art or music. The author has surpassed her goal of delivering an accessible, informative, and inspirational book for all individuals interested in the healing Arts In Psychotherapy Elsevier
