ART THERAPY REFLECTIONS: Mandalas in Art Therapy

ART THERAPY REFLECTIONS: Mandalas in Art Therapy | Serious Play | Scoop.it
I use mandala making in therapy to help clients feel calm and centered, for self-expression and as a way to help people explore who they are in groups. The following photos are of mandalas made in a classroom showing how each person ‘saw’ themselves in the circle. They painted how much room they felt they took, how they felt their energy or self looked in the classroom and how they felt they fit in the whole. I have used this exercise as:1.    A device to explore group conflict2.    A visual representation for families in therapy3.    A device to work with bullying4.    A device to work with boundaries and shared space5.    A tool to explore aggressive, passive and assertive behavior.
