In this text Lisa Furman has provided a welcome addition to the literature of the art therapy profession. For educators who teach ethics it is a valuable supplement, and for art therapists in the field this book contributes to the complex discussion of the gray areas of ethical decision making.

Lisa Furman draws from her experience as an art therapy clinician, educator and intern supervisor to shed light on several gray areas of art therapy practice. Furman stresses the need to understand how the art therapist's own background and beliefs affect clinical practice by offering strategies for self-examination. Her excellent text examines ethical dilemmas, delineates applicable art therapy ethical principles and provides quick references for the reader to consult for making ethical decisions. I predict this comprehensive text will become a valuable resource for art therapists at every skill level.

Lisa Furman is uniquely qualified to author a book on ethical issues. I have been impressed by […] her ability to present the subject of ethics in an engaging, sensitive, and on occasion, humorous, manner. Ethics in Art Therapy is certainly a fundamental reading that provides an invaluable advancement of art therapy ethics.
