Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: For the past two years, photographer Lisa Kristine has traveled the world, documenting the unbearably harsh realities of modern-day slavery. She shares hauntingly beautiful images -- miners in the Congo, brick layers in Nepal -- illuminating the plight of the 27 million souls enslaved worldwide.

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: Doodling is so much fun, but it also has many benefits. Firstly, it is a wonderful stress-reliever. Recent research from the University of Plymouth in Southern England shows that this technique not only help relieve stress, but also improves your ability to notice and remember details. Auditory/visual/kinetic learners often recall information that they have heard better if they can doodle. Research has shown that doodling actually helps learning. In findings published in Applied Cognitive Psychology (2009), test subjects who doodled while listening to recorded messages had 29 percent better recall than those who didn't. This video explores doodling in a framework to create a beautiful mandala.

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: This is a fun video drawn to the Tanya Davis song Art. All artists have had these same questions and Andrea Dorfman really brings Davis' words to life with her drawings. This video is for you if you have ever pondered the point of your art in this life or if you have questioned the outcome of outpouring yourself for others to see.

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: This video from Clarity Way states that, 'When seeking to overcome a drug or alcohol addiction, art therapy can be an incredibly powerful tool. Regardless of what artistic skill level you may have, the process of creating art can have a number of benefits for someone struggling with addiction. Not only does the process of creating art provide healing, but examining and understanding the final created product can also provide deep insight.'

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: This youtube clip states that "In the past decade, Georgia has implemented strict measures to fight drug use, with apparent success: officials claim that the number of hard drug users in the country has fallen from 250,000 to 40,000. But the problem of addiction remains widespread. One new rehabilitation program, opened with funds from the Open Society Foundation, is the first to promote art therapy as the key to recovery from addiction. Produced by Tea Topuria, RFE/RL's Georgian Service."

 

Arts & Art Therapy


by Laurie Roman

Prior to a head injury in 2006 I was a Freelance Native American Family History & Food Writer Researcher & Speaker.

That all ended when I was sent flying backwards head first into a cinder block wall...

 

Editor's Note from Erica Curtis: After experiencing a traumatic brain injury, Laurie Roman attempted to relearn crochet through conventional directions. It didn't work. After much frustration, she discovered the skill was stored not in her conscious memory but someplace deeper in the fabric of her being. Without directions or explicit memory, she began to crochet again.

by Laurence Kingston

I walked into this bar
Where I heard that now she danced.
She'd always been the kind of girl
That I wished I could romance...

 

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: I think that when you work in the sex-for-money industry, you see the ugly part of humanity and you begin to believe that that is all there is. Laurence wrote this song when his girlfriend's sister started stripping. A story she told him inspired him to write this song.

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: Being able to express our feelings is vital for our mental and emotional health. Autistic children, many of whom have difficulties with communication, can be show the power of drawing a feeling which often, in turn, enhances their overall ability to communicate and realte to others.

Editor´s Note from Karen Adler: "Don't mistake creativity for chaos," Christy, the art therapist at Duffy's Rehab in northern California advises. Art therapy is a wonderful tool for externalising and exploring emotions. Both practitioneres and clients are continually surprised and delighted by what is revealed by the psyche via the mind-body connection.

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: This short video illustrates the power of art to assist military familes whose sons and brothers have committed suicide, to illustrate and thereby come to grips with their grief. The film highlights the different ways in which grief is felt and symbolised. The tone is one of great sadness and loss but is also tinged with hope.

Editor's Note from Karen Stabley: "The eye is the window of the soul, the mouth the door. The intellect, the will, are seen in the eye; the emotions, sensibilities, and affections, in the mouth. The animals look for man's intentions right into his eyes. Even a rat, when you hunt him and bring him to bay, looks you in the eye." Hiram Powers, American sculptor (1805 - 1873) Drawing the eye is the most requested tutorial of any art teacher. This is the best tutorial that I have seen on this subject.

Art can be used to heal a psyche or express parts of that psyche that have no other avenue of expression. Sonia Weiss Durga's art is a good example of this. She was a deep, complex person with many aspects to her being.
