Our original conversations about developing a book on art therapy with infants, toddlers and their families began early in 2013, in London, at an International Conference on Art Therapy.1 The book is the result of a collaboration between ourselves and contributors from Australia, the United Kingdom and Spain. To the best of our knowledge this is the first book to focus specifically on a range of practice in art therapy with this population. We are pleased to be offering a book that has an international perspective and that presents such a wide range of clinical practice in a variety of settings.
