The story is on Page 14.

Let me know what you think about therapists using art with their clients and getting them to express themselves through movement, dance, drawing, writing, etc.

One of the interesting quotes from psychotherapist Dorit Osher is about moving away from traditional talk therapy.

“Language is very limited because it functions on a on such a different level to our psychic and our emotional systems. What happens in talk therapy is that people just repeatedly go round in circles and it becomes very hard to change patterns.”
