re: ‘Healing Arts’
What a wonderful interview! As an artist, an art therapist and a member here in EAS I find the discussion between the two disciplines to be of great value.
I wish to strengthen Jessica's view on her outline of lack of social context in the world of therapy. Most of the focus in the therapeutic world is on the inner self with little view on the social context to which the person is born to and its great impact to one's life.
I also see much more discussions between the art and art therapy world in the approach to symbolic gestures to create a different state of mind.
Very interesting interview and happy to meet and hear more from a colleague over seas.
