Question Re: Does Art Therapy Reclaim Lost Art?

Martin, I like what you had to say about this issue. It is in harmony of my philosophy of art therapy. I wrote a book chapter on Jungian art therapy and would like to share it with you sometime. For now I wanted to put this question to you. What about people who have abused others? I work with Adolecents who have sexually abused others. Part of my work is keep them responsible for the choices they have made in the past and to help them make better choices in the future. Is there nothing "broken" there? Can we not be a catalist to help the client "fix it"? How do we mirror back such "problematic" issues to the client if they are useing very strong primitive resistance to avoid feeling "bad" about their actions. I think I can learn somthing from this discussion and appy it in my practice. I look forward to what you have to say about it. Regards, Hoda
