Imagery in Conjunction with Art Therapy

  • Valerie Hookham


Art Therapy goes hand in glove with mental imagery. The artwork is after all, a two or three dimensional representation of the client’s image. Beverly-Colleene Galyean (1983) says:

It helps to follow imagery work with a verbal and/or non-verbal mode of expressing what we’ve experienced. We find that drawing, painting, writing poems, dancing, moving, singing, chanting, sculpting...are quite good ways of helping us remember and learn from our imagery work. (p.29)
