In the Creative Connection for Groups Dr. Natalie Rogers brings us a practical theoretical, and spiritual joining of the expressive arts and the person-centered approach for groups. Specific guidelines and explorations merge the values, purposes, and methods of both fields. Facilitators learn how to ap- ply this work in a wide variety of situations. The powerful images illustrate case material and the extraordinary effects of this profound group process.
Ultimately, this book is about courage, cre- ative expression, compassion, cooperation, and raising the collective consciousness to heal the planet. No small order. Yet the dy- namic, humanistic process of person-cen- tered expressive arts fosters in individuals and groups the ability to achieve this goal as they become authentic, self-actualized, and empowered. The forceful element of creative expression brings individuals personally and collectively into their strength, honing the ability to envision a brighter future and act across political or antagonistic boundaries to a more peaceful, all-inclusive way of being.
