Editor's Note from Karen Stabley: This is a short video that I made to explain the field of art therapy, the credentialing process, and what an art therapist does. I also take you on a tour of my office and studio.

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: Women are their own worst beauty critics. Only 4% of women around the world consider themselves beautiful. This video is a sampling of a compelling social experiment that explored how women view their own beauty in contrast to what others see. YOU are more beautiful than you think!

While one in seven children will lose a parent or sibling before the age of 20, childhood loss remains a painfully overlooked issue. Serving the grieving community of York since 2002, Olivia’s House has established itself as the premier resource in Central Pennsylvania for children’s grief and loss education...

 

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: One in seven children will lose a parent or sibling before they are 20 years old. Despite these statistics, loss is a painful issue that most people are not comfortable addressing. Olivia's House in Central Pennsylvania is helping family members address pain and give voice to their pain through collaborations within their community. It is a wonderful model for grief and loss education and specialized art therapy.

Nicholas was an absolutely beautiful little 6-year-old boy. He loved sharks, Lego, playing guitar, driving his police car, and his wonderful family. He used to tell his Mom and his Grandmother that he had 300 friends, but judging from all the lives he has touched in his short life I think he has many more than that...

 

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: Nicholas was an absolutely beautiful little 6 year old boy who died in a tragic accident. Every single thing about his death is just unbelievably sad except for one: that his family donated his organs. As sad as this is for them, the act of giving organs will absolutely transform the lives of people that will be the recipients. Nicholas' family knows the art of giving selflessly and Nicholas will live on in the four lives that he has saved!

 

Arts & Art Therapy 


 

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: There is an ongoing debate in the world of art therapy about whether a practice such as this can be called art therapy or whether it is therapeutic art. My personal take on the issue is that if the client/patient finds it beneficial to put thought into, use their own personal sense of design and take time out from their suffering to make something as delightful as this Wish Doll, then what we art therapists actually call it, is somewhat immaterial.

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: Fiction is not entertainment to Toni Morrison. It is the work that she has done most of her adult life.Toni believes fiction is one of the ways that we acquire, digest, and hold information. Language is a creative art that enables the reader or listener to see without pictures. It alone can protect from the scariness of things with no name or suture a place where blood might flow. Simple words can have a profound effect.

Rhodes Scholars are selected not just for their outstanding academic achievements, but also for their character, commitment to others and to the common good, and for their potential for leadership in whatever domains their careers may lead.  A Rhodes piano is an electro-mechanical piano that was described by the New York Times in 2001 as having a “shimmering, ethereal sound”. Both of these very different Rhodes are exceptional...


Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: Music is an incredible form of art that can serve many purposes. It can be used for relaxation, distraction, expression, or prayer. Music can also be a very powerful meditation, just as washing the dishes or walking can be. Music is just one example of an activity that you can make richer and more satisfying by putting awareness into it.

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: Junot Díaz is a Dominican-American writer, creative writing professor at MIT and fiction editor at Boston Review. Much of his writing centers around his immigrant experience. He received the Pullitzer Prize for Fiction for his novel The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, in 2008. He was named a MacArthur Fellow in 2012. The MacArthur Fellowship is a $500,000, no-strings-attached grant for individuals who have shown exceptional creativity in their work and the promise to do more. This is a reading from his book, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao.

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.

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.
