The photograph above symbolizes authenticity; Am I dots or lines?
Being authentic, like finding one’s truth, can be unshakeable and yet mutable in response to a new experience. In my practice I link the Expressive Arts pedagogy with my authentic style of therapy. I understand EA’s framework of sensitizing to relate to my sense of warm up, warming up my clients to decenter or step into a liminal, loving and trusting space for healing to occur. Likewise, the Expressive Arts help formulate my authentic therapuetic supervision style as well. I find that there are numerous ways to sensitize people in order to help facilitate a safe environment for therapy.
