What is left behind?
Hey folks, be warned:
This post has a high *NVUF rating.
I’ve invented something. It’s called the Art Therapy in Residential Aged Care Evaluation, or ATRACE. Pronounced ‘a trace’. I am doing the complex, detailed, organised, dynamic, reflective work of implementing this investigative tool.
I hope one day that other art therapists will be able to make use of it, in the service of ever strengthening the work we do.
Meanwhile, behind the scenes, I play with painted traces in a small experiential way. I guess you could think of this process as art-based inquiry.
