About the Author:

Jo Salas holds a master's degree in music therapy from New York University and was certified by the American Association for Music Therapy. She is also a pioneer of Playback Theatre, an original form of improvisation based on telling and enacting true stories. Her book Improvising Real Life: Personal Story in Playback Theatre has been published in six languages.

Review:

A fine accomplishment with an inspiring, yet usually overlooked, subject. Jo Salas has written a powerful testament to the raw power of artistic experience and the redemptive power of creative expression. She has the poet's eye for telling detail, the playwright's ear for the surprising (and hilarious) rich dialog, and the writer's gift for capturing troubled children in elegant, beautiful portraits. --Eric Booth, Founder of Julliard's Art and Education Program, consultant to The Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center Institute, and Tanglewood, and author of The Everyday Work of Art.

I was clearly moved by this natural, human and heart-touching book. The style is so unassuming and clear. How well the author serves these embattled children! --Dr. Clive Robbins, Founding Director of the Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy Center at New York University, and co-originator of Creative Music Thearapy.

The children whom Jo Salas writes about were all, in one form or another, profoundly disturbed. And yet she managed to contact them with a model composed of music, art, storytelling, role playing and various forms of drama. With delicate insight, deep tenderness and above all, with creativity, she deals with the magic, too often buried and untouched, that is to be found in children. --Zerka Moreno, psychodramatist, co-author (with J.L. Moreno) of Who Shall Survive? (Vol. 2) and co-author of Psychodrama, Surplus Reality and the Art of Healing.
