Focusing-Oriented Art Therapy: Accessing the Body's Wisdom and Creative Intelligence


Product Description

Published UK, 2009
Focusing provides an effective way of listening to the innate wisdom of the body, while art therapy harnesses and activates creative intelligence. This book integrates renowned psychologist Eugene Gendlin's Focusing with art therapy. This approach to art therapy helps clients to befriend their inner experience, access healing imagery from the body's felt sense to express in art and carry forward implicit steps that lead toward change. The book provides in-depth examples and descriptions of how to adapt Focusing-Oriented Art Therapy to a wide variety of clinical populations including individuals and groups with severe psychiatric illness, trauma, PTSD, anxiety, depression and more.
