Annette Shore Authors Art Therapy Book

Annette Shore, art therapy counseling faculty, authored a new book, The Practitioner's Guide to Child Art Therapy, in May 2013.

Shore will autograph copies at a book signing event at Marylhurst University's bookstore on June 4 from 5 to 6 p.m.

Clinically relevant and theoretically sound, The Practitioner's Guide to Child Art Therapy synthesizes the best of the literature on art development, art therapy and child development, while emphasizing the powerful role of art media in fostering creativity and relational growth. Compelling case material and numerous art examples illustrate psychosocial, neurobiological and attachment theories as well as practical applications, including working with attachment disruptions, anxiety, grief, parental conflict, economic poverty, chemical dependency, child abuse and autism spectrum disorder.

Annette Shore, MA, is an art therapist, supervisor and a faculty member for Marylhurst University's graduate program in art therapy counseling. She maintains a private practice in Portland and currently serves on the editorial review board for Art Therapy: Journal of the American Art Therapy Association. With more than 25 years of clinical experience, she has lectured and written about the creative process of art therapy from a developmental and relational perspective.
