Art Therapy and The Self Can Cure Psychosis


Editor's Note from Karen Adler: One of the most exciting things happening in the world of mental health today is the questioning of the validity of diagnoses of psychosis.  This questioning - and a great deal of research - is coming mainly from the realm of Transpersonal Psychology and also from mental health consumers themselves.  This video from LithiumTheKid is a splendid case in point. 'I have been trying to say for ten years now that art therapy can cure psychosis and if done in a certain way, with an extreme view of self preservation and a super human will to live then the image making process can be applied in such a way as to encourage evidential recovery and freedom from illness even medication. Hopefully when the bias has been removed from the equation it will soon become self evident that the only cure for mental illness is oneself.'
