Lieberman's book is in its 3rd printing for good reason: practitioners have found it to be immensely useful and practical. The first part contains discussions of the field of art therapy, stories and examples from practice, and extensive considerations on working with a wide range of groups, including psychiatric In- and Day patients, the elderly, staff groups, ex-offenders, mixed groups of children and adults, women's groups, and many others.
The second part is full of roll-up-your-sleeves ideas. They include activities and games for all kinds of groups (an entire chapter is devoted to group painting), considerations of media, and stimulating concepts to start things moving.
This bibliography is definitive and usefully grouped by chapter. Both sections of the book benefit from pictures of groups at work, as well as many examples of art made using the exercises in the book.
