In The Creative Connection for Groups Dr. Natalie Rogers brings us a practical theoretical, and spiritual joining of the expressive arts and the person-centered approach for groups. Specific guidelines and explorations merge the values, purposes, and methods of both fields. Facilitators learn how to apply this work in a wide variety of situations. The powerful images illustrate case material and the extraordinary effects of this profound group process. Ultimately, this book is about courage, creative expression, compassion, cooperation, and raising the collective consciousness to heal the planet. No small order. Yet the dynamic, humanistic process of person-centered expressive arts fosters in individuals and groups the ability to achieve this goal as they become authentic, self-actualized, and empowered. The forceful element of creative expression brings individuals personally and collectively into their strength, honing the ability to envision a brighter future and act across political or antagonistic boundaries to a more peaceful, all-inclusive way of being

Here is a source book of such compassion, depth, and practical wisdom that its span and influence could extend even to healing the hurts of nations. Fascinating in concept, rich in design, it is a work that brings the expressive arts into groups resulting in personal and collective healing and transformation. As a professional in the field of social artistry (human development in the light of social change), I know of no other work that provides such a comprehensive and useful array of methods. Here is the primer in ways to use the arts to cross the great divide of Otherness. Here is the originating genius of Natalie Rogers s life work that follows upon her father, Carl Rogers s own breakthroughs in making creative connections between people. This book can make a profound difference in our response to the unique challenges of our time. Jean Houston, Ph.D., UN Consultant in human development, Passion for the Possible --Professional
