Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: As a literary buff, do you often find yourself trying to find ways to mark the pages of your favorite novel? Here is a great craft to make beautiful and inexpensive bookmarks. It is so easy and it is a fun activity to do with children of all ages.

Editor´s Note from Karen Adler: An art therapy patient speaks about her art as being 'a window into her inner world' which gradually opened up her ability to speak about her experience of psychosis. An art therapist speaks about his work as maximising the use of the arts in the health realm and as assisting with destigmatisating mental health problems.

Arts & Art Therapy


by Karen Adler, Dip. Transpersonal Art Therapy,
ATH Asst. Editor of Art & Art Therapy

I came across the phrase ‘Loving Yourself 101’ in a magazine a few months ago. I don’t remember what the article was about, only that it was witty and funny and personal in that moving-without-being-sappy way that good writers can do...

 

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: Never have I experienced such difficulty in writing an article for All Things Healing as I have in bringing together my thoughts and feelings around the issue of self-love. Loving Yourself 101 was an idea I came up with four months ago as the basis for an art therapy workshop. Since then, I've advertised the workshop, got sick and had to cancel, the venue became unavailable, I've procrastinated endlessly, chickened out big-time, my confidence has plummeted and I've questioned my whole worth as an art therapist. All as a result of doubting the validity and necessity of loving oneself - go figure! Physician - heal thyself, i say.

 

Arts & Art Therapy


by Rebecca Lazenby

I’ve been working as a graphic recorder for five years. It was a big leap to go freelance after 21 years of corporate life but I haven’t regretted a moment.

Graphic recording is also known as graphic facilitation or scribing and lots of us call ourselves other things like live illustrator or visual practitioner...

 

Editor´s Note from Karen Adler: As an art therapist, I'm interested in the effectiveness of images as opposed to text as communication. I was intrigued by Rebecca Lazenby drawing at the side of the room at a recent local Council event I attended. During a break, I approached her to look more closely at the drawing. It was a visual representation, quirky and cartoon-like, that was taking shape as the event progressed, encapsulating the discussion thus far. The conversation that ensued between us focused on images as communication tools. Both the imagery that emerges from the unconscious of an art therapy client and the images which Rebecca draws at conferences/meetings encapsulate far more than their surface appearance, both are ways of making connections, of telling stories, that aren't as effectively done via words or text alone.

Editor´s Note from Karen Adler: I view storytelling as part of my practice as an art therapist. The power and immense benefit of telling your own story is exemplified in this new documentary about 'normal' people who undergo extreme states which are often misdiagnosed as psychosis. The results of such misdiagnoses can be life-destroying whereas the understanding of your own process and experience can ultimately be profoundly life-enhancing.
From youtube - 'HEALING VOICES is a feature length documentary currently in Production, examining mainstream mental healthcare in the US, and the experience commonly labeled as "psychosis".

Editor's Note: Marina Petro's paintings are inspiring and uplifting. They hold a healing presence that all can feel the energies of the guides, angels and powers that be that have a profound affect. She can feel into the soul of the needs of people and then paint what they need to transform. We all have the ability to heal and it is through color and Marina's ability to see into the other world, the veiled spiritual world, that she can bring healing and soulful inspiration to those in need. This artist is truly a remarkable and soulful woman who wants to hold the world in light, color and beauty...

 

Arts & Art Therapy


by Debra Lansdowne

I am currently a student of Transpersonal Art Therapy in Sydney, Australia. My working life has covered 40 years of various twists and turns all taking me to the point where I stand now, in my mid 50’s, feeling I have many life experiences to share with others in my community. I was looking for a new direction in my working life that would be creative, joyful and assist others to find their joy...

 

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: Debra Lansdowne is studying Transpersonal Art Therapy and gaining immensely from the experience. I asked her to write an article for ATH about designing a ritual to enable her to deal with any left-over 'stuff' from her adolescent years. Debra's story is a lovely example of the additional insights which can be gained by incorporating the arts and the mind-body connection in a creative way. Working with all our senses, honouring the wisdom of our body and creating meaningful rituals for ourselves can lead to profound healing which may not always happen via more conventional, mainstream methods.

Editor´s Note from Karen Adler: The Mental Health Council of Australia reports that one in five Australians currently suffer from mental illness annually.

In the midst of these alarming statistics, we turn to Denmark, a country leading the field of research in a different form of treatment for mental health patients - art therapy. The Kunst Museum is the leading institution in Denmark providing this therapy.

Meet patient and employee, Preben Stig Madson, who tells his story.

by Justine Potter

The arts have always been a significant part of my life. From being dragged along to numerous exhibition openings as a child, to co-ordinating one of the art world’s biggest celebrations - the opening of Tate Modern in London in 2000 - I have always valued the impact of the arts and culture on community and individual wellbeing...

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: This tutorial goes through all the steps and materials required to make beautiful little fairies. Dollar store fairies are useful in therapy with clients, but they are also fun to make and can be as fabulous as your client or child's imagination! The ideal age for making fairies is 8-10 and that aged child can do most of the steps themselves. Everything needed to make the fairies can be purchased inexpensively at the dollar store. Have fun and enjoy!

 

Arts & Art Therapy


by Geron and Rebecca Countess
Brenda Wintermyer was born in south central Pennsylvania. Brenda has loved to draw and paint since she was a little girl. When she was 10 years old, Santa surprised her with her very own easel and art supplies. She remembers thinking, “If Santa thinks I am an artist, I must be an artist!”

 

Editor's Note from Karen Stabley: Geron is an art student of Brenda Wintermyer. Geron loves bright, vibrant colors and is a great admirer of Brenda's work. At the end of one art class, Geron asked Brenda how she came to become an artist. This is Brenda's story.

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.
