The Backwards Book - Eisteach Review

Eisteach, IACP magazine,Vol 15, Issue 4, has reviewed The Backwards Book by Niall Hickey (Boland Press). Here is a selection of comments from the reviewer, David Keane:
'The reader is immersed in Poetry Therapy from the get-go, albeit in a gentle manner'
'This book explores a wide variety of symbols, metaphors and text that can be used in Poetry Therapy . .  samples of experimental and experiential work are also provided . . . it serves as a primer, whetting the appetite. For anyone interested in Poetry Therapy and therapeutic arts it will make a good read.'
'The book itself, not merely its content, serves as a lesson in Poetry Therapy.'
