Supporting Anthroposophic Therapeutic Arts Impulses in the United Kingdom
Interventions for healing and growth
VISUAL THERAPEUTIC ARTS
Through painting, drawing and modelling, the inner world is explored in its connection to the surrounding environment.
Artistic activity helps us to explore and share feelings and thoughts, especially in times of struggle and distress. Therapeutic arts have a beneficial effect on our physical, psychological and spiritual well-being and help us towards greater self-awareness and integration. Areas of clinical intervention include: mental health e.g. depression and anxiety, complex and long-standing health conditions, addiction, bereavement and palliative care, neurological disabilities, developmental disorders, trauma and sensory processing disorders.
THERAPEUTIC SPEECH & SINGING
Finding one’s voice through
the expressive life of language and music.
Therapeutic Speech offers help, not only with voice and fluency disorders, but also in a wide range of physical and psychological conditions.
Some areas of clinical intervention are vocal disorders, breathing-related illnesses, burn out, metabolic illnesses, muscular-skeletal disorders, anxiety, depression, trauma and developmental disorders.
A Bit of Background
Anthroposophic Therapeutic Arts supports people of all ages to find ways of dealing with life’s challenges. They are complementary art therapies based on the understanding of the human being of body soul and spirit.
Artist activity expands our awareness, helps us to discover new directions, and connect with our inner resources.
ART SPACE JOURNAL
The Art Space journal, currently in its 5th year of publication, emerged from the wish to create a platform for the Association of Anthroposophic Therapeutic Arts (AATA) members to share and showcase their diverse therapeutic experiences and insights in a formal publication.
