Self-healing Through Visual and Verbal Art Therapy

by R. M. Simon
£17.99   paperback  Jessica Kingsley Publishers (2005)

Self-healing Through Visual and Verbal Art Therapy by R. M. Simon Explores the therapeutic properties of visual and verbal creativity and its capacity to act as a means of self-healing.
R.M. Simon illustrates the power of art-making with the stories and drawings of seven-year-old Joe, who succeeds in overcoming the trauma of family break-up by expressing his emotional turmoil outside of the formal therapeutic process. The progression from symbolising unconscious distress to becoming conscious through verbalising and able to deal with such distress is evident in the author's discussion of Joe's creative work.
Drawing on Freud's and Winnicott's work on psychoanalysis and play, this book clearly and concisely examines the theory and application of art as therapy and is of interest to art therapists, psychotherapists and students who want to develop an understanding of self-healing methods.
