Editor´s Note from Karen Adler: Sile Molloy is a fellow Transpersonal Art Therapist here in Australia. I met Sile last year when she very kindly offered to help me with the orgainisation of a film festival during Mental Health Month. Sile's motivation for becoming an art therapist was running art classes for children and recognising that their work together could be used to help children deal with difficulties in their lives and help with their ongoing wellbeing. This youtube clip is a beautiful piece of visual storytelling which outlines Sile's journey to becoming an art therapist.

“[God] is before all else the Great Creator, the Great Artist. Art is perhaps the most godlike of human activities. For out of the apparent chaos of life the artist evolves order, symmetry, grace, movement, as out of the void God evolved the worlds spinning rhythmically in space.’’
Thomas MacGreevy...

 

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: I have a great deal of admiration and respect for people who have survived addictions and mental illness and embarked upon their recovery journey. STIGMA is an Ohio-based multimedia exhibition designed to challenge the misconceptions of mental health and substance abuse disorders and   features works by artists from around the world, myself included. I heard about the exhibition last year via a Facebook group called Sydney Recovery. I approached the exhibition orgainiser, Kyle Schalow, about writing an introduction for the exhibition catalogue from the perspective of both an art therapist and a curator. This piece of writing is the result.

From YouTube - 'Picking up a paint brush or decorating a mask is something we often associate with child's play. But it turns out that art-making has the power to do much more. War News Radio's Elliana Bisgaard-Church reports on the healing effects of art therapy for trauma victims, specifically for combat soldiers home from Iraq and Afghanistan.'

Aromatherapy

The taking of one’s own life is seen by most of us as a tragedy of the greatest proportions. Current statistics surrounding suicide are jaw-droppingly horrendous. According to the World Health Organization and the International Association for Suicide Prevention, one million people die by suicide each year...

 

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: I have an ongoing interest in the use of expressive arts therapy in the maintenance of good mental health - both art AS therapy and the use of the arts in therapy to get to the basis of difficulties that could lead to depression. The incorporation of the arts - drawing, scribbling, journaling, poetry, creative writing - into my day ensures that I navigate the difficult moments in my life with a degree of awareness and mindfulness that's not always otherwise possible. This article was written as a prelude to No Laughing Matter: Comedy Gala hosted by The Comedy Channel to support the work of Suicide Prevention Australia.

 

Arts & Art Therapy 


by Suzannah Scott-Moncrieff, MA, MT-BC, LCAT

I am a music therapist. My work involves facilitating aesthetic experiences with and for my clients. Beautiful sounds make up a majority of the therapy sessions. Who are my music therapy influences in this regard? Definitely Carolyn Kenny, Helen Bonny, and of course Clive Robbins and Paul Nordoff...

 

Editor's Note: What makes music 'beautiful'? How do we work with this as music therapists? Suzannah writes curiously and raises some interesting points on beauty in the context of music therapy.

 

Music Therapy & Sound Healing


by Doris Jeanette

“Does the color of the clothes I wear effect other people,”asked Peter, a visitor to drjeanette.com. This interesting question brings up the physical nature of colors, emotions, and energy. Colors and emotions are both composed of physical vibrations. The energy of these vibrations constantly effect and affect you even if you don't know it or acknowledge it. Colors have certain wavelengths, which you can feel and experience. Emotions have certain wavelengths, which you can also feel and directly experience.

 

Editors Note: Dr. Jeanette’s article made me curious about the physics of color and physiology of emotions. I’m including a segment below that I found on wikipedia.com which describes this in more detail. See below the article to read "The Conceptualization of Affect".
