Art therapy has many faces (55:41)
This program provides an overview of art therapy—its aims, various
approaches, and ways to best facilitate patient creativity—using footage
of therapists in action and endorsements from patients who it has
helped. The video also profiles some art therapy pioneers, documents its
spread to a variety of settings, and lets viewers know what kind of
training is needed to become an art therapist today.
Yes you can! The story of Mickie McGraw and the art therapy studio (41:51)
This program profiles McGraw and cofounder Dr. George
Street, a psychoanalyst who was also an artist, and the unique approach
they developed to assist people with disabilities by using art therapy.
McGraw discusses her childhood bout with polio and how it shaped her
subsequent career goals, while supporters and patients comment on the
impact of the Art Therapy Studio, which has become a model for
expressive arts programs around the world.
The arts as therapy for children (25:39)
This program shows activities in multiple modalities—music, dance, art,
and drama—in a creative arts therapy program for youngsters at risk for
developing emotional problems. Examples taken from each of the
modalities depict how directed creativity can help channel aggression,
while also illustrating the social benefits of the multicultural
gatherings. Using classic footage from pioneering sessions filmed in
1973, the video emphasizes the mental health values common to all of the
art forms when used as therapy.
