This book is for artists, educators, psychotherapists and anyone interested in getting to know and integrate all of the self.
We all have inner parts—frightened, angry, isolated, sad and lonely—that we have shut up and shut away because being in touch with them hurts or overwhelms us. We don’t know how to manage these parts or the feelings they carry. But those parts need to be connected to and witnessed if they are to be embraced and healed. Creativity gives us a way to contact those discarded parts of self and make space to integrate the variety and substance they offer to our lives.
Using personal, educational and clinical examples from her rich background as artist, educator and therapist for over 20 years, Audrey Jolly provides groundbreaking theories and practical exercises in movement, art, drama, voice, and writing. By exploring the interdisciplinary approaches in this book, each reader is empowered to design their own unique pathway towards self-discovery and healing.
