Psychoanalytically-oriented Expressive Arts for Addicted Hospitalized Patients

ROOM 703

Art therapy facilitates access to the world of emotions through creative and symbolic processes, and is thus conducive to transforming unconscious material into concrete representations. This 90-minute paper presentation will discuss how the convergence of art therapy and psychoanalytic theory can find application in a hospital setting for patients suffering from addiction. The presenters have combined psychoanalytic concepts with learning theory, humanistic creativity research, and sociobiology to produce a unique art therapy approach for treating addiction. A case study of an alcohol-addicted patient will demonstrate the value of incorporating psychoanalytic theory with the art therapy practice.

Eligible for 1.5 Credits: ATCB, NBCC; ASWB, APA, MFT, Nursing; SWNYS
