Arthur Robbins, a pioneer in art therapy, demonstrates how aesthetic communication transforms psychodynamic treatment. In brief focused art therapy, the patient lives out her life theme: follow your spirit by living on the edge. Her mother, a Holocaust survivor, holds on to her daughter with a silent scream, and the therapeutic question soon enters the picture: can you dance and follow your soul when the ground is covered with blood? In this moving dialogue, principles of art therapy are elaborated and brought to life. Dancing on Blood represents Arthur Robbins' 35 years of experience as a therapist, sculptor, analyst and teacher.
