Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: The Story of Stuff is a 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of our production and consumption patterns, presented through simple sketches. The Story of Stuff exposes the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues, and calls everyone together to create a more sustainable and just world.

Arts & Art Therapy


by Jean Pollack, PhD

Many people seek comfort when experiencing upsetting emotions such as worry, sadness, boredom, unhappiness, discontent, or loneliness. Are you replacing an emotional need with food? Like a lover, food can be used to silence one’s loneliness, pain, or suffering...

 

Editor's Note from Karen Stabley: Are you replacing an emotional need with food? Sometimes people silence their feelings of loneliness, despair, or suffering by consuming. Consumption addictions include food, video games, shopping, alcohol, pornography, and other negative behaviors. In this article, Dr. Jean Pollack explains this frustrating cycle and how to recreate new networks.

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: I love to see art therapy make a difference in people's lives, particularly school students who are empowered to take back control of their lives via art. 'Gangs, murder and fear are common vocabulary words for some Chicago Public School students. They see tragedies so often that it harmfully affects their behavior and academics. But Art Therapy Connection tries to change that. This non-profit helps children and teens conquer anger and other emotional issues through artwork.

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: Although not strictly an Art or Art Therapy topic, I have included this video here because of my long time interest in the phenomenon of Spiritual Emergence/Spiritual Crisis and my belief that Transpersonal Art Therapy has a role to play in discriminating between the two.

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: Art can provide the missing piece of a person's life, no matter what their age.  In the words of this video, "It can give a broken man something of which to be proud." Painting in Twilight is the story of Lester Potts who developed Alzheimer's disease at age 70 and his son, Daniel, whose poetry was inspired by his father...

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: Art therapy works as both art AND therapy, enabling people to access their true selves which is often hidden way down deep inside and covered over by years of denying the self.

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!

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: Frank Warren isn't an artist or a therapist but he's a magic man when it comes to the art of communication and what makes people well. Frank is the founder of PostSecret.com where strangers mail their secrets to him on postcards. At the end of his talk, he shares that he wasn't aware of his unconscious motivation of dealing with and healing from some of the secrets of his own past when he came up with his idea and so brilliantly implemented it.

 

Arts & Art Therapy


by Rebecca Countess

Come with me.  I want to take you to the top of a mountain where the evergreen trees are tall and narrow and there is still a crunchy layer of thin, but loosely packed snow.  The sun is shining overhead and you breathe deeply.  The air is crisp and cool and you smell damp wood and pine needles. You can see little buds beginning to grow with their tight, snug layers and mysterious contents.

 

Editor's Note from Karen Stabley: Guided imagery is a gentle but effective technique that directs and focuses the imagination. It can help access the subconscious through symbolic and challenging stories. As an art therapist, I often use guided imagery with my clients and for my own self growth.

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.
