What is art therapy?

How art therapy helps us.

Recently I came across the profession of art therapist through a conversation with a good friend. He is already responsible for a school near me as a pedagogically active youth worker and is currently doing his further training as an art therapist.

What is art therapy?

Art therapy is a young therapeutic treatment method. It was developed in parallel in Europe and the Anglo-Saxon world in the middle of the 20th century.

This form of therapy has a wide range of applications and is used in schools, institutions for the disabled and  in hospitals. In itself, wherever therapeutic measures can be applied. The application is not restricted to specific age groups or social groups.

Their recognition, especially with regard to legal regulations, is not the same everywhere. In England and Switzerland, the integration of the profession of art therapist is strongly regulated by law, in Germany, however, hardly at all.

The most striking feature is that art therapy adds a third element to the patient and the therapist. This means that a relationship triangle is created from the usual bilateral relationship.

The design of the patient at work is thus the supplementary element. Complex relationships can be created through different settings. Different forms of artistic activity can be used.

Work on the clay field

While working on the clay field, the patient works on malleable clay in a wooden box. The following video offers a very good insight.

Mess Painting

Spontaneity is at the centre of this type of painting. To achieve this spontaneity, painting is performed under time pressure. Only seconds are available for each painting. The process of painting is in the focus, not the picture as such.

Expressive painting

Arno Stern developed this method in the 1950s. The playful aspect is in the focus, not the artistic design. Similar to Messpainting, the path is the goal.

Drawing forms

This art therapeutic method is widespread in Waldorf education.

Drawing test

The Rorschach test in particular should be familiar to many, as it is often shown in film productions. But also other methods like the thematic apperception test and the Wartegg-drawing test belong to this category.

Art therapy in Switzerland

In Switzerland, the profession of art therapist is regulated by law. A recognised state qualification is required in order to be able to offer his services as an art therapist.

Art therapy in Switzerland is widespread. In any case, pay attention to the qualifications that guarantee a correspondingly high-quality education.

Summary

Art therapy is an interesting addition to the longer known therapeutic methods. It is still relatively new, but has already proven its effectiveness in practice and has become an indispensable part of modern therapy.


CBD Oil - Effective or Hype?

August 5, 2019 - Reading time: 3 minutes

In recent times I heard again and again about CBD oil and its healing effect. But what is it and what does CBD oil consist of?

I myself did not read too much about it yet, but a good friend of mine, who had a chronic intestinal problem mentioned the oil to me. He said his problems had disappeared after a long odyssey with medication. As a result, I found out on the Internet what CBD Oil exactly is. I haven't tried the oil yet because I'm in good health. But I'm not getting any younger and in the event that at some point I'm not doing so well, I'd better get informed in advance!


Doing good business with sports betting

August 2, 2019 - Reading time: 5 minutes

I once had a fellow student who earned a golden nose by betting on football matches while studying. One day he came to the lecture and was devastated. He told me that on the weekend in injury time somewhere, in some country a goal had fallen which had completely destroyed his combination bet. Otherwise he would have won such a large amount that he would have retired or stopped studying. Is that possible? Is it really possible to earn money systematically with sports betting?


Find a job without a necessary qualification

Find a job, that does not require a special training.

There are job boards where you can find anything. Hundreds or thousands of job ads. The problem is, 90% of them are mostly completely uninteresting, because they belong to a completely different occupational group. In addition, sometimes even the employers wrongly put a hook in the circuit, and then the job slips during the search. Better already are the industry-specific sides, where one can find job advertisements particularly for engineers, physicians, lawyers, technicians, KFZ mechanics or whatever. But what if you have no training? This is usually a criterion that cannot always be filtered during the search. Then the search becomes an ordeal. Unless you go to CaptainJobs.


A Trip to the USA - what to take care of

What to take care of, when visiting the USA

Advertisment - There are many reasons to travel to the USA. Which places are worthwhile themselves and which is to be considered with the entry, I want to describe here briefly.

Vacation in the USA

The USA is an interesting holiday destination. You can do everything there that you can do usually only in different countries. Skiing in the north, sunbathing and swimming in the south, especially in Florida and California. Many interesting areas invite you to extensive hikes. Mountain ranges like the Rocky Mountains with their untouched nature and national parks. But also the big cities, which belong to the biggest in the world with their buildings and size. New York, Los Angeles and Miami, to name but a few that every child knows.

Which places should you visit? It's hard to give a general answer. Many decide for a round trip. You rent a car and drive to the places that interest you most. If you are mainly looking for cultural entertainment, you will be on the road a lot on the east coast. Nature lovers will probably be drawn to the Midwest.


Why you should use a craftsman portal

Why it makes sense to use a craftsman portal

As a real estate owner, you are often faced with the necessity of consulting a craftsman. If you are lucky, you already have a competent person at hand who comes to work. You can trust him because he keeps his appointments and works properly.

With me it is however in such a way that I accomplish many work and need therefore only rarely a craftsman. When I need one, the craftsman has either died, moved or given up his business for reasons of age.

Then it's time to find one again. Especially in times of the building boom it is very difficult to find someone. For example, I was looking for someone to install my blinds. Not much work, a few screws and acrylic are enough. I picked out three craftsmen from the telephone book and wanted to make appointments. None of them had the necessity to come by at all. In the end, I did it myself.
