I am interested to hear from anyone involved in any way re: applications of PhotoTherapy techniques (or even only personal "photo-explorations"; i.e., "therapeutic photography") in terms of the increasing opportunities that computer technology and digital imagery can provide.
I am guiding two students (in two different countries!) who want to explore what happens when current techniques of PhotoTherapy are "brought forward" into newer technological frameworks and possibilities. One is using digital imaging to create metaphorical self-portraits, and the other wants to try to adapt more active PhotoTherapy interactive techniques into some sort of guided process (exactly what, is still vague at this point).
I am sure art therapists and other therapists out there are taking the next step into the new millenium and its new technological promises -- I would like to hear from those of you whose expressive-medium-of-choice is photographic process and/or product.
Not only will I be giving a Keynote address about this combination of PhotoTherapy as a conceptual directive for the next century (for the Ontario Art Therapy Association and the Canadian Play Therapy Association next May), but I am also thinking of writing a journal article about this, and would like to feature the work (with proper credit of course) of any of you who are finding exciting or interesting results (or thoughts....).
Please contact me at (604) 689-9709 (phone/fax) or thru e-mail at: JWeiser@istar.ca
