In The Press

Of Mice and Metaphors offers a gold mine of clinical material. Brandell amply demonstrates the power and effectiveness of his approach. His case illustrations vividly detail how children unveil their psychodynamics through the stories they tell, and his responses give evidence of his empathic attunement and immersion in the children’s psychological lives. Both beginning and seasoned therapists will find much to draw on from the contents of this book.”
