Art in the Professions



An interesting point of convergence between art and health is the discipline of art therapy. It is a form of psychotherapy that encompasses multiple fields and form the bridge that allows health care professionals to reach patients who are considered very difficult to treat. Since its humble beginnings in the mid-1940’s, art therapy has continued to thrive between the boundaries of art, art theory, psychology and psychiatry.


What is it?


Art therapy has multiple definitions, since it came together from multiple origins. The most common definition combines its psychoanalytic roots and its behaviour-modification roots. Art therapy is defined by The British Association of Art Therapists as:
… A form of psychotherapy that uses art media as its primary mode of communication. Clients who can use art therapy may have a wide range of difficulties, disabilities or diagnoses. These include, for example, emotional, behavioral or mental health problems, learning or physical disabilities, life-limiting conditions, brain-injury or neurological conditions and physical illness. Clients do not need to have any previous experience or expertise in art.


The American Association of Art Therapists goes further and added more specifics to the discipline in their definition:
Art therapy is a mental health profession that uses the creative process of art making to improve and enhance the physical, mental and emotional well-being of individuals of all ages. It is based on the belief that the creative process involved in artistic self-expression helps people to resolve conflicts and problems, develop interpersonal skills, manage behaviour, reduce stress, increase self-esteem and self-awareness, and achieve insight. Art therapy integrates the fields of human development, visual art (drawing, painting, sculpture, and other art forms), and the creative process with models of counseling and psychotherapy.


Who's involved?


Art therapy is usually initiated as a part of psychotherapy. Clients who are enrolled in these programs are usually referred to a therapist by either other medical professionals, school counsellors, law-enforcement officials and even courts and prisons.

As a reflection of the varied roots of art therapy there are usually two kinds of art therapy that are performed. One of them involves free-form therapy. The patients are given blank canvases and a variety of artistic implements. Clients are allowed free reign on what they want to do with the implements given. Sometimes the artwork sessions are directed. A set of instructions is given to the client so they have a guideline to start with. Free-form artworks are not evaluated by either the client or the therapist. Instead, the artwork is displayed as a focus of inner reflection and discussion tools.

The other common kind of art therapy reflects the psychoanalysis root of art therapy. A set of instructions are given to the client with blank sheets of paper and artistic implements. A number of these instructions exist and evaluation criteria have been given to help analyse the “inherent” meaning behind the pictures. Some of these instructions have found their way into popular media like the "House-Tree-Person" test or the "Road drawing" test.

Each session is seen as a step towards planning the following one. And the clients are encouraged to take their work seriously. They are also encouraged to use these pieces as a focus of their own inner healing. Sometimes the therapists will hold art exhibits to display the work produced by their clients. The exhibits may also be used to raise awareness for the conditions that the clients suffer from.


Who's in charge of art therapy?


Both the clients and the therapists are in charge. The therapist’s role is to encourage and lead the client down a path of healing. But the client is really the one in control. The client also has a say if he or she wants to participate and how much they want to participate. Sometimes the "Free-form" school of art therapists encourages the clients to produce more artwork when not in session. The goal is to make art a part of the client’s life so that he or she can gain more benefit from the creation of art long after the sessions are over.


What are the benefits?


Art therapy has been shown to be beneficial in dealing with some of the most difficult to treat clients. It has been used to help autistic children to gain more forms of expression and help with their interaction to others. Art therapy has also been shown to help with healing from PTSD and other forms of loss and grief (including loss of friend/parent, a AIDS diagnosis or a cancer diagnosis.) Even people with dyslexia can use art therapy to express themselves without having to go through the common usage of language.

Other forms of art therapy have been used extensively in eating disorders. Many of the rehab centres in the US and UK contain art therapy as a part of the total healing process. Similar art therapy sessions have started to be implemented in drug addiction rehab centres and even prisons.


... Controversies.


So, how can something so good have controversies? Despite the successe achieved by art therapy, some controversies do exist. Some of the more common ones include:

Bullet; Blue Who owns the art? (This is more commonly asked when the clients live in a rehab centre.) Can the clients be known as "artists"?

Bullet; Blue Do the therapists give more credence to people with better drawing abilities? Do those with better artistic abilities get more benefit from art therapy?

Bullet; Blue Do the therapists help to foster the client's artistic abilities or just use the pieces for medical purposes?

Bullet; Blue Are the psychoanalytical findings in art therapy reliable? Are the drawings created by clients during art therapy just imagination or based on truth?


How do I get involved?


Despite the controversies, there is a lot of merit to art therapy. The benefits definitely outweigh the nitty-gritty controversial details. It’s also not traditionally considered an “artsy” job, but it perfectly marries the fields of art, education and therapy. This is the dream job for anyone who loves art and loves working with people.

Art as Therapy
This is an article for :iconprojecteducate: and it's week of "Art in the Professions."
Art therapy is one of those professions that do not readily come to mind when it came to choosing art as a profession. But it is not only rewarding but also under-appreciated. This is a primer into the fascinating field. And hopefully this will inspire a few readers to explore this wonderful profession and take it into consideration.

If you have personal experience with art therapy, please let us know! :D

... Sells seashells by the seashore. by SinistrosePhosphate
... Sells seashells by the seashore.
We have this local festival in the summer called "Fun, Fish and Folk Festival" where people from all over the world come in for a little bit of home-grown Newfoundland charm. We have fiddlers and fishcakes and other things that do not start with the letter "F", like icebergs. Indeed, Twillingate is known as the "Iceberg capital of the world." The local hospital (where I work) is calling to all crafters in the city to see if they would donate some crafts to sell at the festival to raise some funds for the hospital.

They called, and I answered.

To be honest, if you told me 10 years ago that I would be sitting in a corner embroidering little stars on felt seashells, I would tell you that you must be horribly mistaken (or stronger words to that effect). But... here I am. Two dozen seashells ready to go. What I wouldn't do to give back to this little community that's taken me in as one of their own... :aww:

Recent market research (of 5 people) seem to indicate they will sell well, due to the fact that they are small, kitschy and nautical themed. I sure hope so. Because the other stuff they were thinking of was knitting mittens and scarves. Who buys those on a hot July day? :XD:

1. Made from felt, embroidery floss, golden embroidery thread and polyester quilt batting. With a ribbon and a bell.
2. Size: 10cm by 7cm (4" x 2.75")

Tea with Liam - Scottish Breakfast by SinistrosePhosphate
Tea with Liam - Scottish Breakfast
A commonly forgotten breakfast tea is the "Scottish breakfast" and it is the strongest tea out of the whole family. Legend has it that the water in Scotland is "Soft" - meaning that is has little in ways of impurities and mineral content. It also means the water lacks a certain "taste" and therefore need a stronger tea to complement the "tastelessness" of the water. As much as I am a tea enthusiast, I think this legend is probably someone's fanciful imagining that has been retro-fitted to an existing version of breakfast tea. It's much more likely that the hearty, robust Scottish highlanders like their tea just the way they are!

Technical details: 
1. Words hand-written with Staples "Opti-flow" rollerball pen, medium.
2. Drawn with HB mechanical pencil and shaded with 2B & 3B graphite pencils.
3. Lined with Staples "Opti-flow" rollerball pen, medium.
4. Strathmore 300-series Mixed Media paper 5.5"x8.5" (14x21.6cm), 90lbs (190gsm)

The Longest Night: Eleven o'Clock

Journal Entry: Tue Mar 31, 2015, 7:49 PM



The ticking clock heralds the passing of time. 

Endless, monotonous minutes creep through the hallways of the mind and the labyrinth of the soul where men are left to face himself and his irresistible compulsions. These unspoken forces drive our deepest desires and fuel our most profound fears. We are powerless in front of them, just as we are powerless in the face of the march of time. 

Do you hear it?
They call for you in the midnight hour, whispering in your mind’s ears the most secret of secrets. 

Do you see it?
They appear to you from the corner of your eye, beckoning you to follow them down the rabbit hole.

The clock chimes. It’s time to listen up and follow suit. Will you come seek us in the darkened rooms filled with echoes of the past? Will you dance with us under the garish mercury moon? Will take our hands and join us through the Longest Night?

Thank you for your participation in our long march towards the final, shining hour of our longest night. The march is ending soon and we must all pick up our feet. The time is nigh upon us and the calls which beckon us howl louder than ever. If you have not joined us on this march yet, this is the time. And time, like the sand beneath our feet, is running out fast.



They're all out to get me... Eleven o'clock: Monomania/Persecutory Delusions :staranoid: 


The term "monomania" existed in the earliest psychiatric literature as an umbrella term, meaning that the affected individual is afflicted by a single, profound and unwavering set of delusional beliefs. The term monomania has now being dismantled and reorganized into individual delusions. One of the most common delusions is known as the persecutory delusion where the affected person believes that harm is occurring or is going to occur. Similarly, they believe that there's someone out there with the intention of causing harm to him. This is sometimes termed “Querulant paranoia” where one person holds the strong belief that he is being excessively wronged by a third party.

Notable example: Ted Kaczynski, a.k.a. "The Unabomber" has spent most of his adult live living in an isolated cabin in the woods of Montana. His motive for bombing several well-known governmental buildings and universities is said to be a revolt against the overly-industrialized world, believing that it will ultimately lead to the destruction of human freedom. Most believe he suffered from persecutory delusions and paranoia.

To our dear patients: Please consider joining us on our long march through the hills and vales of the human mind. After all, they say one man's trash is another's treasure. One man's fear may just be another's pleasure. And you would never know what your pleasure is until you explore the extremes of your senses. So please, come explore with us. There's always room for more. 

If you are interested in reaching out to the staff for conversations, one-to-one sessions and a guided-tour of the grounds and the lay of your mental mindscape, please don't hesitate in letting one of us know. We are mostly approachable and we take pride in our work and our patients.

"To sleep, perchance to dream... But in that sleep of death what dreams may come must give us pause..."
- William Shakespeare, "Hamlet"

Syn.




The Longest Night: Eleven o'Clock

The long march is coming close to an end. That's actually surprising, even to me.
When I first entered this project, I had no idea that it would recieve this much attention and I had no idea that it would run above and beyond several "hours". But now, look at us! We are almost at the end. Such a pleasant surprise.


This is a controversial hour - after all, "if they are really out to get you, it's not paranoia". A lot of the times people who have persecutory delusions believe firmly that they were being wronged by multiple and various agencies (or individuals)... and sometimes they were actually right. Of course, this is a rare occasion most of the time but it does exist. Some people actually actively take on the role and persona of one being persecuted in order to further their agenda. All of these topis are not only relevant in today's society, but expand far and wide beyond the realm of psychology/psychiatry. As we march towards the end of our shining night, we have come out of the obscuring darkness and into the garish limelight. And the audience will tell us which way to go.

Greetings.
I am not an articulate person. But I'll try.

Yours truly was born in 1981, Taipei, Taiwan.
Moved to Canada in 1993.
During the day, he's "Dextrose Phosphate": a recently-employed resident physician trying to look sharp while learning how to save lives. At night, he becomes "Sinistrose Phosphate": an amateurish busy-body who dreams of one day getting a hang at this "art" business.

... in my humble opinion, neither one's going great, really.

Despite all that... thanks a million for visiting my little proverbial hole in the wall (of the Internet). Stay a while, have some tea, leave a comment... maybe even start a conversation.

I'm not an articulate person, but I will most definitely try.

Current Residence: Newfoundland, Canada
Favourite genre of music: Various (with exception to Rap and Country)
Operating System: Windows 7
MP3 player of choice: Windows Media Player
Shell of choice: ... Nautilus?
Wallpaper of choice: Whatever the landlord puts on the walls.

I was wondering is it normal to blackout when your in a psychotic episode? Cause sometimes I have blackout and don't know if it is cause of psychotic episodes. The last time I blackout it was in February of 2014 and I attacked someone at the hospital. I remember other times I blackout like when I was 17 I was just standing g next to a Electric fence and next thing I know I'm laughing cause it shocked me or a time when I was a kid I was maybe between eight and ten years old I remember mom pulling the car over and getting out of the car but the next thing I know my mom is on top of me trying to get me to stop attacking her. Has this happened to anyone else?

Was I having a psychotic episode?I was hearing voices today and yesterday telling me that people were out to kill me and then I got really paranoid where I hid in my bathroom or my room to hide from Windows so they could not see me Cause if they seen me then they would shot me. My anxiety was up as well cause of the paranoid thoughts. So was I having a psychotic episode?
