“Whenever illness is associated with a loss of the soul,” writes Shaun McNiff, “the arts are born spontaneously as the remedies, the soul of medicine”The artist’s medicine, like the shaman, arises from his relationship to the “family”-the themes, methods and materials that interact with the artist in the creative processThe Art of Medicine shows how imagination heals and renews itself through this natural processThe author describes his pioneering methods of art therapy–including interpretation through performance and narration, creative collaboration, and dialogue with images–and the ways in which they can revitalize both psychotherapy and art itself
