ART THERAPY REFLECTIONS: How Do You Hold Your Body?

ART THERAPY REFLECTIONS: How Do You Hold Your Body? | focusing_gr | Scoop.it

The way we stand, sit, and walk influences how people may see and judge us. We all know that by changing our posture, we can change our emotions and thoughts. Sitting in a curled up or regressed way helps promote feelings of being small, inadequate and being unimportant. Walking with our arms swinging, sitting in a spread out position or running with our arms out wide promotes feelings of power and confidence....

The Five Top Reasons Why You Should See An Art Therapist

The Five Top Reasons Why You Should See An Art Therapist | focusing_gr | Scoop.it
Reason Number Two: is because most Art Therapists do not privilege words. Our society privileges words as the dominant means of expression. Most therapies use words (talk) as the primary way to deconstruct and reconstruct personal narratives.

ART THERAPY REFLECTIONS: Art Therapy and Rebounding

ART THERAPY REFLECTIONS: Art Therapy and Rebounding | focusing_gr | Scoop.it

We all meet failure at some time in our lives; accepting failure is often very difficult. More challenging is trying to rebound from failure. How do we learn from the experience and get the courage and strength to try again? First, we have to come to terms with the fact that we failed, process the emotions, and resolve the loss. While we are busy healing the loss, we need to somehow keep the passion alive for the project or idea. A part of us needs to stay engaged and confident that the first try did not work, but that does not mean that the book will not be published or the idea will not be accepted. We need to hold both; the ability to process and be with the part of us that is suffering due to the loss or rejection and then also be with and believe in the part of us that does not want to let go of the project or idea and knows that it can be realized. We have to become rebounders. Rebounders can hold onto themselves while making changes.
