Body Map Art Therapy CAT© a Gestalt Approach 

Body mapping is an innovative methodological technique that is often able to capture the imagination of clients, and reflects unconscious material recorded in the body, after an important and / or traumatic experience.

A powerful projective technique, enabling us to discover our other self...

During this workshop you will:

  • Art techniques that involve the creation of the Map of the body, materials and steps adapted to the client's age in therapy sessions.
  • Investigate and experiment about the body creation and the process in the therapy session. 
  • Discover the realization that what lands on the page is a completely somatic response, with no editing.
  • The body-mapping process reveals differing levels of awareness of body regions.
  • Using body-mapping in the therapy sessions with clients, (which encourages visual processing and/or embodied awareness) offers  access to information which would otherwise be overlooked or rendered invisible.
  • Body mapping is a storytelling and inquiry process that enables people to reflect on personal and professional life experiences through the creation/production of a visually rich picture  — a body map — to gain a different perspective or insights which may influence what they do now or in the future.  (C. Lloyd)
  • The body outline becomes the starting point for a visual and textual self-inquiry.
  • What emerges is a combination of the conscious choices and decisions people make during the process, as well as responses to the emergent image. 
  • An opportunity to explore the client's process when they are creating Art. During the art making process, transference emerges in the way that clients handle the art materials provided by the psychotherapist, and the final creation.
