A particular advantage of there being a tangible object produced is that it is often easier for a resistant patient to relate to the picture than to the self. For example, a hospitalized depressed man initially spoke of the angry expression on the face in his picture. indd 11 4/3/10 11:22:26 AM 12 Principles and Application he did not feel angry himself, he said. Eventually he came to identify with the figure in his picture and to recognize his own anger. In this way the art expression can form a bridge.

A few related to me as someone who was not a part of the unit and would use the art therapy sessions to express their anger and disappointment with various staff members. The variety of goals, settings, and structure of art therapy sessions is extremely diverse, depending on many circumstances.

In this way the art expression can form a bridge. I call this process objectification, because feelings or ideas are at first externalized in an object (picture or sculpture). The art object allows the individual, while separating from the feelings, to recognize their existence. If all goes well, the feelings become owned and integrated as a part of the self. Often this happens within one session. For particularly resistant people, it may take longer. For example, an agitated, depressed elderly man denied for many months that his pictures had any relationship to his feelings.
