Example text

Failures in intervention The preceding examples tell of success. But we must also consider failure or flawed empathy. THE BIG FIST Raymond came to the art room crying bitterly because a big boy had hit him. Raymond’s most serious symptom was his masochistic need to provoke hostility, abuse and rape. Undoubtedly he had been hit because he had invited aggression, and following his pattern he had not defended himself but had retreated, nursing his injuries. Evidently art therapy could not help Raymond to resolve his masochistic needs.

Seeing that the teacher or therapist can paint well, some children will distort the learning process into a dogged attempt at appropriating her skill, much as if it were a material possession which the therapist refuses to part with. Such a child will not just attempt to make the therapist help him, but will try to make her act in his stead, and carry out his intentions as if she were his alter ego, capable of reading his mind, or even capable of giving form to his vague and incomplete ideas. This attitude is akin to the concepts of the very young child who still feels one with the mother and is unable to distinguish between the self and the outside world.

She had a great need for personal dignity and kept herself well-groomed and well-dressed in spite of her depression. But she found it difficult to accept her black skin and was given to drawing pretty white ladies with blond hair and blue eyes – defensive, unattainable ego ideals that could bring no comfort (and which probably even helped maintain the depression). Her decision to make a picture of herself and her children at the beach was in itself a victory. She wished to represent herself at ease in the grass.
