About-

The attic is a wondrous place. It is a place to fix things: Dad's workshop is there, and Henry's special corner, which hides his secret supply of building blocks. When his soldier father comes back changed, Henry's fantastic block towers are threatened by Dad's sudden outbursts.

But in the attic inspirations come, and repairs of all kinds are made…

Time, Love and Licorice is a story of pain and hope. This Healing Coloring Storybook is illustrated with drawings of Henry's optimistic, creative and imaginative world -- a safe space in which children and families can face and try to heal from the disruptions caused by Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Time, Love and Licorice is also a tool for professionals who are intent on helping those suffering from PTSD. The artwork creates a transpersonal space, a dream space. There are no images of angry fathers or frightened children to impose emotions upon the reader. The story is visually expressed through the familiar rooms and objects in the child's life. One may observe, with a series of copies used over a course of time, that the child's chosen method changes as creative self-

Bio(s)-

Dr. David H. Rosen is a physician, psychiatrist, and Jungian analyst. The vast array of his interests include finding meaning in suffering; spirituality as it relates to healing; dreams; all kinds of creativity, especially visual art and haiku; and practicing what he preaches.

Rosen is the author of eight books, including The Tao of Jung: The Way of Integrity; The Healing Spirit of Haiku with co-author Joel Weishaus; Transforming Depression: Healing the Soul through Creativity (now in its third edition) written after interviewing survivors of jumps off the Golden Gate Bridge, and treating many suicidally depressed patients; Medicine as Human Experience with co-author Dr David Reiser, a classic in the field. Rosen's books have been translated into many languages.

The initial holder of the McMillan Professorship in Analytical Psychology at Texas A&M University, Rosen hosts the Fay Lectures and edits the Fay Books in Analytical (Jungian) Psychology. Though retired, he is Affiliate Professor in Psychiatry at the Oregon Health & Science University.

Diane Katz has seen the value of emotional transformation through artistic expression. She uses a high-energy, emotion-releasing technique to draw with creamy blocks of beeswax crayons. The result is a cross between printing, drawing and monument rubbing, in which hidden images magically reveal themselves on the surface of the paper.

This technique was used to create the cover of Time, Love and Licorice, as well as Diane's illustrations for Beneath the Willow Tree, Garden Snippets and Apples Dipped in Honey: A Jewish ABC.

Other healing books that include Diane's artwork are: Purple: A Parable (for children & adults); The Tao of Elvis by Dr Rosen; On All My Holy Mountain: A Modern Fraktur (for families); and The Story-Letters from Appletta Tooth Fairy.

Through Rosenberry Books, Diane's work has been seen at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Smithsonian, the Chicago Institute of Art, Washington National Cathedral, etc. and recognized by Design Observer of the Winterhouse Institute.

Diane lives with her husband in the woods of North Carolina among the fox squirrels, rabbits, deer, and green anole lizards. Interested in the curative properties of herbs, she is delighted to discover that candy made from real licorice root can be used to help heal adrenal exhaustion and stress.
