about

Wexler argues that the arts are most effective when they are in service of social growth, critical to identity formation. This book balances theory with practical knowledge and offers critical research that challenges the biases regarding the nature of art and education.

Editorial Reviews

"Coherent, insightful, and passionate, Wexler provides an essential text.Both practical and enlightening, the work provides a useful resource for teachers, administrators, and scholars. Summing Up: Highly recommended." - Choice"Wexler's book starts with a good overview of the problem and need. Her new ingredient - the urgency to conquer isolation and reclaim selfhood often results in equally powerful art - is very important and often omitted...This book has interdisciplinary implications because it unifies art therapy, art education, science - brain research, and even social work." - Mary Stokrocki, Professor, School of Art, Arizona State University
