Transcript of "Creativity and its aid to recovery final"

  1. 1. Creativity and its Aid to Recovery Jackson Pollock Rachel Booth and Faye Singh
  2. 2. Damien Hurst ‘I like the way art works, the way it brightens people lives up… but I was having difficulty convincing the people around me that it was worth believing in. And then I noticed that they were believing in medicine in exactly the same way that I wanted them to believe in art.’ http://www.tate.org.uk/pharmacy
  3. 3. Little bit of History • • • • • • Creativity has been central to occupations used in occupational therapy through its history. Wilcox (2002 p489) The use of occupations, activity and creativity continued to be used as interventions by occupational therapists in mental health until in the 1970s when there was a move towards therapeutic communities and discussion based interventions. Crafts would still be used but were increasingly seen as divisional rather than with a specific therapeutic focus. “Interventions which promote well being also play an important part in recovery from mental illness” “There is evidence that art can assist recovery from mental illness” “Social Inclusion and participation are important for recovery and improving the outcomes for people with mental illness” The Royal College of Psychiatrists Position Statement PS4/2010 p.28
  4. 4. Creative Task • Felt Purse’s • Evidence Based Plan
  5. 5. What is Creativity?
  6. 6. Creativity • ‘the ability to make or otherwise bring into existence something new, whether a new solution to a problem, a new method or device, or a new artistic object or form.’ (www.britannica.com) Dove of Peace by Pablo Picasso
  7. 7. What do we understand by Recovery?
  8. 8. Recovery Concepts • • Clinical Recovery - is an idea that comes from mental health professionals. To recover in a clinical sense means that you are free of the symptoms of mental illness, you are able to adhere to social norms and are generally ‘getting back to normal’. Damien Hurst Pharmacy Personal Recovery - is different - it is an idea that comes from people with lived experience of mental illness. www.rethink.org Picasso weeping woman
  9. 9. Recovery • ‘a personal process of overcoming the negative impact of diagnosed mental illness despite its continued presence.’ (NIMHE, 2004) • “…a deeply personal, unique process of changing one’s attitudes, values, feelings, goals, skills, and/or roles. It is a way of living a satisfying, hopeful and contributing life even within the limitations caused by illness. Recovery involves the development of new meaning and purpose in one’s life as one grows beyond catastrophic effects of mental illness.” (WA Anthony 1993) www.rethink.org
  10. 10. Recovery • Recovery is possible through a combination of supports needed to re establish a major social role and the self-management skills needed to take control of the major decisions affecting one’s life. • This combination of social supports and self management helps the person regain membership in society and regain the sense of being a whole person. LSUHSC (2009) Recovery Model in Action: Facilitating Purposeful Occupations in a State Mental Health Facility. http://alliedhealth.lsuhsc.edu/occupationaltherapy/ContinuingEd/Outline-RecoveryModelInAction.pdf [accessed online 28 October 2010]
  11. 11. So why use Creativity to aid Recovery • Respondents noted therapeutic value in both the process and product of creative activity. Depression could be challenged both via the creative process (that provided a sense of autonomy, decisionmaking, and creativity) and via the product (which could stimulate pride, evidence of skills and/or self-worth). The experience of relaxation was particularly valued and related to the total absorption of attention by the task. (Reynolds, F. (2000) Managing depression through needlecraft creative activities: a qualitative study. The Arts in Psychotherapy, 27 (2), 107114.) Vincent van Gogh's painting," On the Threshold of Eternity
  12. 12. So why use Creativity to aid Recovery More than 50% of participants reported that engaging in creative activities had helped their functioning in daily life, indicating that it had assisted them to improve their concentration, focus their minds, structure their day, provide opportunities to socialise and interact with others, promote their creative expression and enhance their self confidence.
