Self-Healing Through Visual and Verbal Art Therapy explores the
therapeutic properties of visual and verbal creativity and its
capacity to act as a natural means of self-healing. Drawing on
Freud's and Winnicott's work on psychoanalysis and play, R.M. Simon
illustrates the healing power of art-making with the drawings and
stories of seven-year-old Joe, who succeeds in overcoming the
trauma of family break-up by expressing his emotional turmoil
outside the formal therapeutic process. The progress from
symbolising unconscious distress to verbalising and becoming
conscious of (and able to deal with) such distress is clearly
demonstrated in the author's discussion of Joe's drawings and
stories. This book offers a clear and concise examination of the
theory and application of art as therapy and will be useful for art
therapists, psychotherapists and students in these fields wanting
to develop an understanding of self-healing methods.
