Adam, it is always important, as you clearly point out, to know when an Art Therapy directive needs to be adjusted for different populations and diagnoses.
Warmly, Dr. Deah

Having one’s body traced may seem like an innocuous task, but for clients with histories of trauma, boundary violations, severe anxiety, or psychotic symptoms, the process of being traced can have a destabilizing influence.

We executed this art directive last week in my women’s group and this week we’ll process through them. The women I work with are recovering from chemical dependency. Many have huge, yet quiet sufferings tied to body image. Imagine taking methamphetamine for many months, stopping use, the body is inadequately cared for (lack of money for healthy supplements, lack of exercise, huge cravings for unhealthy types of foods to fill the void of the drug). I am so excited to help my clients get in touch with the difficulties they face, contrasted with what they do like about their bodies. I love the ideas expressed here because I’m realizing it’s going to take more than 2 sessions to address. Thanks so much for this article. I want to hear more! Warm Creative Expressions to you! Karen
