Art Therapy Experientials, Summer Edition

I have been immersed in condensed, workshop-style art therapy courses this summer. It has been intense, but also incredibly eye-opening. I have gained a much stronger grasp of cross cultural issues, neurobiological art therapy trauma treatment, art therapy techniques for specific populations, creative arts therapies, and metaphors in psychopathology.

Here is a sampling of some of my own work.

What is it like to create without knowing what you’re adding onto? How does each part fit into the greater whole? This was a Gestalt exploration of parts and how they fit into the whole.

What is it like to sit in someone else’s perspective? What thoughts and emotions come up? What thoughts and words can I offer others? How do we come together as a group?
