Mark Kanzer

This article describes therapeutic experiences in a military setting. All patients in a neuropsychiatric ward who were willing to coöperate were drawn into a psychiatric art program. The team consisted of a male psychiatrist, female social worker and male artist, all of whom collaborated in reviewing the art and integrating the clinical findings with the material observed in the productions. 'Ordinarily group therapy refers to a single therapist treating a group of patients. This project was somewhat novel in that there was a group of therapists treating the individual patient.' The patient had the opportunity to react with a variety of personal attachments and therapy could be pursued accordingly.

The writers found the art work an excellent diagnostic aid. Color, motion, content and fluctuations were analyzed. The use of bright colors by schizophrenics and patients suffering from brain injuries were investigated. Therapeutic advantages were found in utilizing the art productions to gain access to the unconscious and to follow the progress of treatment.
