HEALING ARTS (1998)
by Anthony Stevens
Publishers
Published by Continuum, London (2004)
Publishers Description
Withymead, a Georgian house beside the River Exe outside Exeter in Devon, was the home of Gilbert and Irene Champernowne, who turned it, during the Second World War, into a unique sanctuary of healing for people in mental  distress. 

A residential therapeutic community made up of staff as well as patients, Withymead pioneered the use of art therapy and Jungian analysis in a family setting. This is an intimate and dramatic account of a remarkable achievement written by a psychiatrist who knew the community well and is able to present it in the context of its time.
