Produktbeschreibung
Everyone has a creative side. Not everyone has the opportunity to explore their creative selves within a safe, encouraging space where they can express themselves while being heard, seen, and accepted for exactly who they are in the present moment. HEALING, WELLNESS, AND EMPOWERMENT THROUGH ART AND RITUAL guides facilitators to provide just such an environment. Every art-making activity allows participants to use a variety of materials in their own unique way. This provides participants with confidence to be who they are and the understanding that there is no right or wrong way to move through the process. It is the process and the awareness that is gleaned throughout it that are important. This manual is designed for art therapists, expressive arts therapists, therapists, or facilitators for use in arts-based groups. This informative book will provide guidance and specific ideas in facilitating groups that give the participants a safe and sacred space within which to create and explore their inner selves. It contains six chapters, each of which walks the facilitator step by step through the whole process from start to finish of six group sessions. The group process is clearly laid out along with a list of materials necessary for each session. The group leader is introduced to the basic elements of ritual and mindfulness. In each of the main chapters there are opening rituals, clearing rituals, meditations, one creative art-making activity, a time for sharing, closing exercises, and finishes with evaluations. The group process draws participants into an inner focus for awareness, healing and well-being. The groups take place in a safe and peaceful atmosphere. The book also contains an extra chapter with meditations that can be used during the group process.
