    Digital Art Therapy is an important, timely book. Finally, Rick Garner and the contributing authors have placed the digital platform where it squarely belongs: as a 21st century palette for today's art therapy consumers. It would behoove any art therapist to read this book and become educated on the digital apps and possibilities for using a digital platform as a vehicle for communication, recovery, and ongoing health.
