The Creative Connection: Expressive Arts as Healing

£60.00

Product description

Every human being has the capacity to be creative. It is also true that part of the psychotherapeutic process is to awaken the creative life force energy. Thus creativity and psychotherapy overlap. With these recognitions, Dr. Natalie Rogers has developed a process called the Creative Connection, an interweaving of all the expressive arts to reclaim vital parts of yourself. Expression through one art form stimulates and nurtures other forms. Dancing enlivens your art and writing. Making sounds frees your movement and art. This creative expression brings self-understanding and personal power, and leads to spiritual growth.
The author emphasises the importance of have psychological safety and freedom while using the expressive arts. This reflects her firmly established roots: extensive work with her father, Carl Rogers, and a deep belief in his person-centered philosophy of counselling.
It is the wondrous creative process, rather than the ultimate product, that is significant. Starting with simple and fun exercises for a rainy day, you can move gradually and easily into more profound uses of the expressive arts including working with clients to help them identify and be in touch with feelings, explore unconscious material, release energy, and discover their spiritual dimensions.
You will find this book extremely helpful if you are a psychotherapist, counsellor, educator, or group facilitator working with individuals whose concerns are:
* life transitions
* addiction recovery
* sexual abuse
* pushing through creative blocks
* developing spirituality
* Communicating across cultural boundaries
This richly illustrated book shows how Natalie Rogers has expanded her father's work by moving beyond purely verbal psychotherapy. Drawing on the work of Carl Jung as well, this approach to personal healing fully engages your mind, body, emotions, and spirit.
