It could potentially be very powerful for people to conjure up “negative spirits” and some people may not be ready or know how to quickly transform their emotions and forgive people in their lives. This could be a great intervention but I would be mindful when deciding who to use it with and in what context. Always make sure art (OR ANY) interventions are safe! That is our first job as therapists.

My mother always said kill them with kindness. I am an artist/illustrater and I would love to learn more about this Mandala art healing. I am also looking for fun ways to use recyclable items to creat with kids. When I was growing up we lived out in the country so we usually made most of our own toys, from whatever we could find. I think we had more fun hunting for things to use and creating the progect that the toy itself. I dont have a college degree but I do have a very extensive imagination.

I work in a crisis home for people who have mental illness and am always looking for fun groups. Thank you for the opportunity to have a wonderful, educational group for adults!

Art therapy was essential to my own recovery, and I was delighted when the treatment team at this facility asked for my help with the art therapy groups.

I went online to do some research, and came across your site. I’m so glad I did! I will be referring back here often for more info and ideas, and will be working through the projects on here myself before I work them with the group I’ll be helping facilitate.

Thank you for providing such an excellent resource!

It was a forbidden zone because of the manufactoring and testing of the biogical warfare weapons created there. In the midst of that kind of horror, art did play a key role in helping keep human beings sanity.

The idea of creating something in order to forgive others (those who hurt us – the “negative spirits”) showcased the fiesta in the new light to me – was the perfect art therapy out of itself.

I have a 17y.o. artistic client who I see in grief counseling where we focus on art as the medium to explore her grief issues- this will be a perfect intervention and will be used today!

Thanks so much!

Thanksgiving & Christmas activities would be great!

Your articles inspire me to become an art therapist- I am going to school in the fall to be one and I’m very excited-even more-so when I see projects like this.
