the Art saved me; it helped me to overcome

my depression and self-hatred,

to get rid of feelings of guilt.

Jeanette Winterson

there Are days when everything is bad, everything goes wrong and all is not as it should... These days we used to call melancholy or depression. Then we don't want to see anyone, to hear anyone, with no one to communicate, to climb in a hole and to be discouraged

Well, if the next day everything goes, and if not? If the depression sucks? Then what to do?

the Internet is a lot of advice about this, but... does Not always help bubble bath, the phrase "it gets better", a soul tearing apart....

Then the can help art therapy!

there's nothing We can do if it's inside of us! Listen to what you have inside, to your thoughts, the sensations in the body, the emotions. Try to draw, sculpt, build on the sand, my longing, print. You can paint with his eyes closed and drawing using all the means at hand, not just paints and pencils!

When your work is ready, look at what you have created. In this work, the main thing not beauty, and the output of that concern is that lurks inside. When the inner substance takes its shape, it is already possible to do something. Look closely at his creation. You might want to change something? You can add lines or color in the picture. To prilepite, crease or dolerite figure from clay. But if you created sand composition, then rebuild it.

Definitely need to redo! It is best to create a picture of his good mood or happiness!

Picture of happiness you can draw the prints of hands, feet, fingers and for this is not absolutely necessary to buy finger paints. You can make them yourself!

creativity Therapy is used by many psychologists and psychotherapists for help with depression. Art therapy is effective in treating moderate and severe forms of depression – this was stated by the Swedish researcher Kristina Blomdell. Under her leadership at the University of Gothenburg carried out the experiment. The experiment involved 79 volunteers suffering from depression. They were divided into two groups. The first group consisted of 43 people, the second – 36. They used the same drugs, attended sessions of psychotherapy and physiotherapy. But for volunteers from the first group conducted sessions of art therapy. For the second group it was not. After 10 sessions the measurements were made, which showed that levels of depression in volunteers from the first group was reduced by 5 points. The indicator has not changed. (Source:
