Your Bodyyourself Draw Your Body And Explore Your Selfimage

Psychodynamic-oriented group psychotherapists (Rutan & Stone, 2000) usually encourage verbal interaction in the group and work with words, not with action or art materials (Malchiodi, 1998). When they do use planned active interventions they find it hard to incorporate these techniques into their regular group process. The following technique is used to enhance body awareness (Cash & Pruzinsky, 2002), but also to deepen exploration of self-image. It is used not as a stand-alone technique, but as part of a psychodynamic group, and therefore the interaction between group members around the drawings and the feedback they receive from one another is an important part of using it. Beyond the specific "exercise" of drawing one's body, this demonstrates how to integrate any art and action exercise into a psychodynamic group.
