ART IN PSYCHOLOGY

ISSUE 2

Dear Reader!

The second issue of Art in Psychology has been published during a global pandemic, an unprecedented economic crisis and indescribable concern for our common future.

Today, more than ever, art therapy is becoming a space of hope. Psychological freedom and psychological care come together in the visionary world of art therapy, which not only promises to save the psychological nature of man but also to preserve all his creative values and immortal ideals.

Believing in the power of imagination is the most powerful tool against overcoming fear and insecurity. The world of art therapy is an unusual analogue of both the world of art and the world of psychology. The world of art therapy is a world of many projections, in which our unmanifest beings are hidden.

Art therapy is best understood as an attempt to combine the psychological image in which we usually perceive the world and each other with the superiority of art. In art therapy, the opposition of the purposefulness of art to any life experience returns to the scientific will to knowledge. Art therapy is a place between art and science, not as a laboratory space, but as a real living space.

PHILOSOPHY AND METHODOLOGY OF THERAPY BY ARTS
Peter Tzanev.
Visual Representations of Psychological Concepts in Modern and Contemporary Art
The article explores historical aspects of visual representations in art of various concepts and terms from different psychological systems and schools. Modern art developed part of its escalating autonomy in the syncretic field of psychological Modernism, which in the late 19th and early 20th centuries included theories and practices related to hypnosis, somnambulism, psychical research, dream interpretation, mediumistic psychology, automatic writing, faith healing, and spiritualism. The distinctive feature of psychological Modernism was its embrace of a primarily psychological solution to the problems of modernity. Under the epistemological constellation of psychological Modernism, as a free imaginary space for a radical psychological rethinking of human experience, there was a large specter of related ideas that came from the fields of medical psychology, psychiatry, psychical research, transcendental psychology, theosophical psychology, philosophy of life, psychoanalysis, and applied psychology. Between 1930 and 1970, the artists interacted mainly with ideas and concepts that were in the field of gestalt psychology, social psychology, phenomenological psychology, and cognitive psychology. What has happened in psychology since the end of the 1970s is largely a consequence of the total dominance of cognitive neuroscience and the reaction of other psychological schools to this situation. Art without the role of arbiter has continued to interact freely with a wide range of psychological ideas and concepts.

How to survive
How to survive: potentials of techniques used in the sphere of self-regulation of psychophysical states.
The article is about research of techniques on self-regulation and possibility of their effective application in the real conditions of pandemic. Genesis of therapeutic influence was chosen as a focal point of scientific interest because it is based on activation of those structures of mind which will help form sense and neсessities of existence. Finally, analyzing experience of scientific and empiric exploration in which there is a range of self-regulation techniques the author thinks it is important to state that accepted methods are mainly targeted on short-term therapy of emotional state. As far as the author is concerned, self-regulation of holistic state of organism and mind should be explored on the base of existential approach.

«Art therapy-cleaning» method
«Art therapy-cleaning» method in the study of the phenomenon of emotional self-regulation.
The new for art therapy term-phrase “Art therapy-cleaning” is argued in the context of symbolic cleansing of emotional memory as a practical method of positive transformation of the client’s artistic product in order to mitigate the consequences of traumatic memories and experiences.
ARTS-THERAPEUTIC STORIES
Nikitina Natalia.
Insight into Pathway mystery
The article is about exploration of the way in which an image of real present and image of “Pathway” are closely connected. The latter promotes a deeper understanding of the complex issues of consciousness. Importantly, it was to examine an individual experience of embodiment of “Pathway” building on both Taoist and existential views at the present time. We are living at a crucial moment of history when the time of being is challenging the contemporary technocratic civilization revealing the essence of people’s life. Nothing including passionate obtaining of something out of the world of things can be more significant than a person’s effort to comprehend and improve in a spirit and bodily way.

The Veracity of Agnes Martin’s Schizoid Disorder
This is an essay in which a student of Modern and Contemporary Art looks for signs of schizophrenia in Agnes’s personal world – her paintings, lectures, and thoughts. Alexandra has no direct contact with people with schizophrenia. Her observations of the disease are virtual – on the confessions of real people on YouTube, suffering from an unstable state of mind. In this extremely short composition, she comments on Agnes’s work through the eyes of a painter and future art critic and compares it to information about the disease from the videos, articles about Agnes Martin, and artworks by other artists who are also said to suffer from schizophrenia.

The Three Types of Art Therapy
The article is dedicated to the EEG experiments in the field of neuroscience and art therapy. The EEG scan analysis shows the increased presence of Alpha waves indicating relaxation through creativity for all participants. The activity in the left hemisphere in the artist’s brain was more evident compared to increasing activity in the Frontal Lobe on non-artists, which is a sign of learning. Some abnormalities in the cortical brain waves appeared during a few of the sessions, which may be responsible for deeper brain networks.
