The Revealing Image free pdf In this volume, Joy Schaverien describes and defines "processes which have so far only been intuitively known to art therapists" by introducing and elaborating the psychoanalytical concepts of transference and countertransference in relation to the use of visual art objects. Schaverien suggests that analytical art psychotherapy is a way of working analytically with patients who are unsuitable, or unready, for psychotherapy, giving examples of psychotic and borderline patients, children, and patients in psychiatric settings.
