Book Summary:

"Do you remember who you were before the world told you who you were?" Rarely do you come across a book that changes you forever. This is one of those very special, consciousness-raising texts. Far more than a self-help book, Eco-Art Therapy - Creative Activities that let Earth Teach is a self-help lifestyle. Chock full of stimulating quotes, inspiring pictures and restorative exercises, this manual provides unparalleled transformation. The search to find ourselves can be a frustrating one. Many of us run in circles trying to find meaning in a world that often times seems all wrong. We try in vain to manage the symptoms of our troubles, but fail to understand the real problem. As this revolutionary book explains, the root of much of our discontent is the unreasonable difference between the way we learn to think and how Nature works. Though people are part of Nature and we inherit a love and respect for its purity, beauty, and perfection, we grow up in a society detached from its eons of sensory intelligence; we seldom include the genius of the natural world in our daily lives and thinking. To our great loss most of us are out of touch and out of synch with the regenerative and balancing ways of the Earth. This makes us strangers to ourselves. Tragically, we've lost sight of who we really are. If you've ever spent time in a natural area or with a pet you know the power of Nature to heal. Dr. Sweeney blends art therapy with ecotherapy in a unique learning tool which gives you the means to anchor that feel-good aliveness so it doesn't fade when you return indoors. The engaging and practical Eco-Art activities she presents in this manual use art as a bridge between your innate, but suppressed natural intelligence and your conscious awareness. These simple, but powerful, paradigm-shifting exercises help you surface your inherited wisdom into your psyche so you can think with it 24/7, making your time spent in Nature, not only momentarily cathartic, but lasting. Your time has come to reclaim the joys of your birthright. Reconnect with the wild and join the great awakening! Note: This workbook is also the text for accredited online Eco-Art therapy classes and professional certification. All readers, therapists, educators and coaches are highly encouraged to expand their personal and professional skills with this truly life-changing tool.

Book Summary:

The purpose of this thesis was to develop an understanding of how Eco-Art Therapy could affect adults in recovery from substance use disorders. A review of the literature provided information on substance use disorders and the negative impact these disorders could have on an adult's overall wellbeing. The literature review also provided an understanding of the need for holistic treatment modalities for adults in recovery, and discussed how Ecotherapy and Eco-Art therapy could be beneficial for this population. This study used a phenomenological research approach, and an Eco-Art therapy focus group followed by individual interviews were implemented in order to understand the participant's experience of the phenomenon. An organic inquiry approach was also utilized to understand the participants' stories of their experience of the focus group, as well as the researcher's story of the experience. The findings of this study showed that increased exposure to nature and creativity in a natural setting can be beneficial for adults in various stages of recovery, and can allow adults in recovery to experience a decrease in anxiety and an increased awareness of their immediate surroundings.

Book Summary:

Environmental Arts Therapy: The Wild Frontiers of the Heart describes what happens when we take the creative arts therapies and the people whom we work with out of doors in order to provide safe, structured and accompanied creative therapeutic healing experiences. The theoretical themes are developed along with illustrated examples of clinical practice across a variety of settings and locations. The work is introduced and co-edited by a pioneer in the field, Ian Siddons Heginworth, who describes the emergence of environmental arts therapy and its growth across the British Isles supported through the training course based in London. The following 12 chapters are written by contributing authors and creative arts therapy practitioners working with children, adults and elders in schools, adult mental health and private practice in Britain and Europe. A central focus of the book is the clinical populations and settings in which clinicians work, and it also describes the health benefits as well as the challenges faced when working out of doors. This is a book about the emergence of a new creative therapy modality in the British Isles. It shows the value of working with the natural cycles and seasons, using an integrative arts approach including dramatic enactment, role-play, poetry, art-making with natural materials, storytelling, and the use of bodywork through movement, sound, rhythm and the voice, all held and reflected by our encounters with and in nature. It is about our relationship with nature, creativity and therapeutic healing and is written for trainers, trainees and practitioners in the creative arts, psychotherapy and ecotherapy.

Book Summary:

This study investigated the effect of ecological-art therapy on stress and mood among professional caregivers of individuals with dementia. Thirty-three participants were recruited from a dementia healthcare facility and randomly assigned to one of three treatment groups, in which the level of nature used in the art-making was manipulated: eco-art collage using natural materials only; nature collage using only magazine images of nature; or non-natural collage using only magazine images of non-natural items. It was hypothesized that the eco-art group would experience the greatest decrease in stress and negative mood, and increase in positive mood in comparison to the other two groups. It was also hypothesized that the nature collage group would have a greater decrease in stress and negative mood, and increase in positive mood in comparison to the non-natural collage group. Using a pre and posttest design, participants were administered the Perceived Stress Scale-10 Item (PSS-10) and the Positive and Negative Affect Schedule (PANAS). Results did not support stated hypotheses, as no statistical difference was found between stress and mood changes among the three conditions. However, the eco-art and non-natural collage groups did result in significant changes in stress and mood from pre to posttest scores. The results indicate that tradtitional collage making and eco-art collage interventions could offer stress reduction, along with improvement in mood for professional caregivers.

Book Summary:

Craft in Art Therapy is the first book dedicated to illustrating the incorporation of craft materials and methods into art therapy theory and practice. Contributing authors provide examples of how they have used a range of crafts including pottery, glass work, textiles (sewing, knitting, crochet, embroidery, and quilting), paper (artist books, altered books, book binding, origami, and zines), leatherwork, and Indian crafts like mendhi and kolam/rangoli in their own art and self-care, and in individual, group, and community art therapy practice. The book explores the therapeutic benefits of a range of craft materials and media, as well as craft’s potential to build community, to support individuals in caring for themselves and each other, and to play a valuable role in art therapy practice. Craft in Art Therapy demonstrates that when practiced in a culturally sensitive and socially conscious manner, craft practices are more than therapeutic—they also hold transformational potential.

Book Summary:

This book discusses dream work through the lens of art therapy theory. It is written in a personal voice from a perspective of discovery and curiosity toward the unknown. This territory is metaphorically explored in relationship to geography and landscape. It provides a structural foundation for dreamwork within a relational art therapy approach based on phenomenological and existential world views. Approaches to dreamwork include psychoanalytic theory, depth psychology, gestalt theory and phenomenology. Poetry, theory, and praxis are interwoven, demonstrating the process for creatively exploring dreams and artwork. Dreamer and artist are respected in the journey discovering new horizons and footpaths that might be revealed and encouraged to make and remake their own maps along the way. The intention of this writing is to bring a felt sense of an integrated way of exploring dreams honouring the courage it takes to explore the dream’s terrain.
