Sample text

Simple acceptance and praise of his original drawing would have confirmed that everyone, even Zilzer, had given up hope for any change. The art therapist had to find a way of giving support that could be integrated without dialogue – a way of giving support on a preverbal, essentially symbiotic level without, however, establishing a symbiotic dependency. In this Zilzer succeeded. Experiences such as Adam’s cannot bring about any fundamental changes in a chronic patient. However, inasmuch as schizophrenics habitually live in a world of symbols and fantasies rather than in the world of reality, the symbolic experience of rebirth could help sustain Adam’s remission and give more substance to his limited existence.

Confusion about the more recently introduced terms, ‘art psychotherapy’ and ‘primary therapist’, likewise seems to stem from an understandable but mistaken wish to be all things therapeutic to all clients. In her prepared remarks [for the plenary session in discussion], Kramer went on to point out that an art therapist may become a primary therapist for no better reasons than default; even when many modes of treatment are available, it may be the opinion of a therapeutic team that art therapy is the single therapy of choice and therefore an art therapist may be assigned chief responsibility for a particular patient, whether he is seen individually or in a group; or the art therapist may reasonably serve as the person responsible for guiding and coordinating several different modes of treatment.

The complete act of sublimation, then, consists in the creation of visual images for the purpose of communicating to a group very complex material which would not be available for communication in any other form. Form and content become an inseparable whole. The need for this kind of communication has many sources. For one, there is the repressed material itself which pushes to the surface and demands fulfillment. Then, there is man’s paramount narcissism which cannot suffer that any part of his person has to remain hidden and unloved, so that he is moved to exhibit his hidden self through his creations.
