Purpose of Art & Expressive Therapies in Adlerian Training Programs
Wondering why Expressive therapies are used? I've heard an author (Bruce Larson) opine that the unrelenting *Impression* of life's demands would ostensibly lead to *Depression* were it not for the relief provided by personal *Expression*. The value of Expressive Therapies can therefore be represented arithmetically using a sort of credit/debit metaphor (which more accurately quotes Larson): Impression - Expression = Depression. It has been said by others that considering Elation to be the opposite of Depression, then Elation = Expression - Impression, expressing the converse of this effective relationship. This completes this Posting on a Positive note.
