Treatment with the Integration of the Arts

Treatment with the Integration of the Arts

By Dr. Dany Lousky

Treatment with the integration of the arts is a treatment method characteristic of the emotional dimension. Through the integration of arts in treatment, it is possible to train and practice the ability to identify emotional lacks.
Treatment with art is emotional therapy conducted using visual means, when the art is an alternative means of communication that is not a complicated language (Case and Dalley, 1992). The artistic creation is a way of distancing the self from the feeling of powerlessness, of freeing the self from inhibitions. Art is a world without bounds that is constructed on symbols, images, and metaphors and receives its uniqueness in the encounter with reality.
One of the qualities of treatment with art is its ability to connect to the unconscious part of the person’s mind (Yiftach, 1992). Through art, the person comes in contact with his emotions using nonverbal means that allow images that represent the patient’s conflicts and troubles to be brought to his mind. Artistic expression increases the patient’s ability to participate in the sense of creation without needing a logical, causal, or circumstantial explanation. Every element in the creation reflects to some extent the sense of the self. A visual translation of the perception of the self is expressed in the elements of the page, in the proportions, in the wholeness, in the details or their emphasis, and in the degree of use of the means of expression. It is possible to use an examination of the strength of the line and color. Understanding the symbol and its personal meaning helps the patient release aggravating contents and achieve insight and a sense of greater control.
Integrated medicine is medicine that integrates treatment methods from all four dimensions that comprise the whole person. Treatment using arts integration is a treatment method that allows the practice and training of the emotional dimension in each one of the 32 intelligences for the closer encounter with the joy of life (Lousky, 2005).

Table number 8 describes the relationship between colors and the intelligences, the colors of the clothes the person wears, the color of the walls in the home or in the office, the food colors. All these are related to the intelligences. Adding, removing, and changing colors practice and train the life values according to the trend of change (Lousky, 2005).
