Editor's Note from Karen Adler: I studied Transpersonal Art Therapy with Lali. She's one of those young people I greatly admire and who give me profound hope for the future of our species.

One of the many beauties of art therapy is that the arts are universal, they know no race or cultural boundaries and can speak of an individual's world in ways which words often can't. This is Lali's story of her time as a volunteer creative arts facilitator with Orphfund in Africa.


Arts & Art Therapy 


by Ellen Joseph

Expansive, peaceful views of nature, with calm waters and verdant trees and colorful flowers, are some of the most psychologically beneficial images for patients who are recovering from surgery, according to the findings of Roger S. Ulrich, PhD, Director of The Center for Health Design. Dr. Ulrich's research proved that such positive scenes of nature can substantially improve patient outcomes...

 

Editor's Note: Using evidence-based design, artist Ellen Joseph combines research and art to produce paintings and murals that reduce the negative emotional and physiological effects of stress.

1. Speak your pain without words...

 

Editor's Note from Karen Stabley: If you are in a family, have friends, and interact with other people, then you are inevitably going to deal with conflict. The question is never whether or not there will be conflict. The question is how are you going to deal with it. The difference between happy and unhappy relationships is not the absence of conflict. It is the presence of forgiveness. It truly is our deepest need and our most difficult and highest achievement.

Editor´s Note from Karen Adler: A beautiful example of the arts in social activism, social justice. Australian documentary filmmaker, Anna Broinowski, went to North Korea to emulate their propagandist film making methods in her efforts to stop coal seam gas mining. The result is clever, funny, effective.

 

Arts & Art Therapy 


by Jeannie Lawson

the only safe place in a storm
is in the eye
curl inside and wait
time stands still...

 

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: As a poet, and also as someone who's suffered from depression and anxiety in the past, I discovered the power of poetry in dealing with my own difficult emotional states. As an art therapist, I use all art forms to help inform clients of their inner world. I initially asked Jeannie if she'd send me some poems for Mental Health Month, which is September here in Australia. Much time has elapsed since then but Jeannie's poetry still shows the beauty and power of working with our emotions in poetic form, bringing about an alchemical transformation so that depression is lessened, lightened but also given the validation it warrants as a signpost to our inner world.

ATH Asst. Editor of Arts & Art Therapy

“Someone once asked me, 'Why do you always insist on taking the hard road?'

I replied, 'Why do you assume I see two roads?'”... 


Editor's Note from Karen Adler: I came to see Depression/Anxiety as a place - a town along the journey of my life, somewhere I used to live for a period of my life after my mother died. It's a place I refuse to take up residence in ever again. Art therapy and writing help me veer clear and take another road. Read Part 1: Giving Sorrow Words : Writing and Depression.

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: This artistic film with many beautiful clips of nature was made in Finland. The narrative is based on Chief Seattle's response to the American government after they wanted to buy the land from the native Americans. This is the third and the most popular version of his speech as modified in the 1970's. Chief Seattle was a leader of the Suquamish and Duwamish Native American tribes in what is now the U.S. state of Washington. The city of Seattle in the state of Washington is named after him.

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: Cheryl Strayed says that she hiked the Pacific Crest Trail because she was none of the things that the trail was. She was not "magnificent, grand, significant, or beautiful" but she wanted to be in that world and thought that being a very small part of that world might help her figure out her own life. We need the beauty and magnificence of nature for many things. We need it to to inspire us to make incredible works of art, transport us to new and different life experiences, and heal us from the pain that we inflict on each other. Cheryl Strayed's journey is one of self-discovery and the art of healing. I hope that this excerpt inspires you to read the rest of her book.

ARTS & ART THERAPY
The Alternate Selves of the Artist

Sonia Weiss Durga 1929-2008

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.
