Please see my April first publication in the 2016 EDITION 1 Newsletter, by the INTERNATIONAL EXPRESSIVE ARTS THERAPY ASSOCIATION:
Please check out 2 articles on the topic of self-mutilation in the same issue.
1) The first article is in the section entitled, Professional Exchange. This article is a portion of a previously published article, The Body as Testament on the topic of self-mutilation (Scott, 1999, pp. 149-164). This article describes the phenomenon of self-mutilation from a research study by the author. This study describes the experience of self-harm in the words of those who struggle.
2) The second article published is also on the topic of self-mutilation, and this article is located in the section entitled, Notes to the Field. This article is a commentary piece about counter-transference and resolution via art. The article discusses the differential between providing psychotherapy and research. This piece includes a self-portrait of myself, as if I was a person in my own research study.
The editor, Roselle O’Brien was very generous to this author. She allotted 12 pages of my writing in a 95 page newsletter. I also wish to thank The Journal of Arts in Psychotherapy for granting the editor permission to republish.
