A child sits up in his hospital bed for the first time in days. He looks out the window and draws the bluish-gray sky, the buildings, and some white clouds. Then, he lightly draws a figure coming out of the clouds. Superman! he exclaims as he holds up his piece and flexes his arm in identification with his image.

A woman, struggling to maintain sobriety, works with found objects in a community park. This is a staircase going down into the ground , she says as she points to the freshly painted steps she s just hammered together. I m calling it Never Ending Journey because that s how I feel today.

A group of highly volatile adolescents are asked to make nothing out of scrap wood, pinecones and stones. The sculptures are exotic and the laughter is contagious.

Aunque muy breve en la descripci?n, cada una de las vi?etas anteriores revela un pico en el poder de la terapia del arte y la importancia de la naturaleza dentro y alrededor de todo lo que hacemos. A medida que entramos en un proceso creativo, se produce una danza relacional entre nuestro ser m?s ?ntimo e ?ntimo y el ser que se muestra y colabora con el mundo externo. Este enlace es la clave para la salud y tiene implicaciones tanto individuales como globales. C?mo manipulamos la materia nos afecta directamente a nosotros mismos y a nuestro entorno. Por lo tanto, la creatividad, de una manera muy particular, es esencial para la curaci?n y el crecimiento de nosotros mismos y nuestra tierra.

Ecopsychology is based upon the belief that a culturally induced, unconscious, mental separation of people from the health sustaining, nonverbal wisdom of the natural world within and around ourselves underlies the environmental problems we face and many of the emotional disorders from which we suffer. Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods , speaks of nature-deficit disorder in children and his writings have been highly useful to parents, teachers and those in helping professions. The premise of ecopsychology is to reconnect or reestablish a relationship between psyche (psychology) and nature (ecology). Theories from ecopsychology suggest that the needs of the planet are the needs of the person. Cycles of nature such as weather, lunar cycles, and seasonal changes, marked by winter solstice, spring equinox and Samhain (or Halloween) can also be sources of connection between psyche and nature. Theodore Roszak (Roszak, Gomes and Kanner, 1995) says that these natural occurrences are happening all the time, wherever we are in a skyscraper apartment in an urban environment or on the top of Mt. Olympus.

Art Therapy has a pivotal role in facilitating these connections. Creating with and within nature allows for a deepening or brand new relationship within and beyond the self. The concept of Environmental Art Therapy is the integration of art therapy and nature and it's practice allows for multi-dimensional therapeutic outcomes. Non-traditional materials tend to be experienced as more inviting and allows people the opportunity to have real impact on and be impacted by the environment through the act of manipulating natural and/or found matter. This is especially significant in our society where so much focus is on separation particularly from the environment through the use of things like consumerism. The aim of Environmental Art Therapy is to offer people of all ages and places, opportunities for real contact with the environment for purposes of increasing awareness and ultimately facilitating improved physical, emotional and intellectual health.

Hay mucha riqueza cuando un ni?o tremendamente enfermo puede, por un momento, conectarse con su incre?ble fuerza, o una mujer que trata de sobrevivir cada d?a puede descargar sus luchas, y un grupo de adolescentes puede reunirse en un momento en que tanto est? cambiando. , y re?r ante el caos.
