A wonderful experience PDF Print E-mail

Due to working reasons I met the coordinator of the Centro Diurno Psichiatrico of Codigoro, Sig.ra Donatella Rossi.
In these center they organize Art Therapy Expressive Laboratory. Donatella asked me to participate to a project to introduce the Pergamena Art to the social workers and to the patients, in their centre
.

.il laboratorio

 

Without a second thought I accepted and, after having followed the bureaucratic procedure, here I am, at the end of September, ready to do the basic training to the social workers who, after, will collaborate with me during the classes to the patients.
During these trainings, some doubt arose about the possibility to apply all the aspect of this tecnique wit the patients, so we tried to understand what and how to do and, after three lessons, I was, frankly, a lot less convinced, I was lacking certainties and I was full of doubt.
So, in an October morning, I left home with all my doubts and uncertainties, to meet the patients for the first time and, during the route to the center, I was thinking haw to do... I brought several patterns, every pattern had for sure some defect, one was too small, the other too difficult, the third too long to do... well, the only certainty I had was that probably they will not appreciate what I was showing them.

But when I arrived, after having met the people, all my doubts disappear and this wonderful experience began.

  Il Corso   Alessia e Odelia

The social workers, Alessia and Serenella, prepared for all the patients a small fabric bag will all the tools, the pads and, at the middle of the tables, colours, scissors, glues. And so, the fun began.
