On mark making and leaving a mark. By Pensri Rowe

'The chapter describes individual and dyadic art therapy with a four-year-old girl and her mother. Relational trauma, sexual abuse, identity and the mother/child relationship are explored.

The images contain aspects of the strong transference and countertransference dynamics typical when working with this age group.'

Key words: transference, countertransference, attachment, loss, grief, cross-cultural art therapy

The title for the book is;
