http://www.laiat.com/atcanaction.htmThe art therapist facilitates simple but novel art activities that are easily experienced by the amygdala as interpersonally safer, as well as help generate more active coping responses (Phelps, Delgado, Nearing & Ledoux, 2004). This benign sub-cortical perception of the art product can stimulate an inwardly attuned, alert state that supports hippocampal processing of new information. Safe symbolic sensory experiences within a therapeutic relationship can bring online a heightened sense of perceived control and well being (Malchiodi, 1999). The sensory-laden vivid artwork created in session can be experienced as real affective experiences accessible to the relational brain. When attention is sufficiently focused, it is as if the mind does not seem to qualitatively distinguish between a real image and an imagined image (Cappas, Andres-Hyman, & Davidson,, 2005; Tart, 1990). This makes sense, as the processing of internal and external imagery processing share mostly equivalent neurological processes (Faw, 1997; Martindale 1990). It is during these states that art-imagery symbolism also seems to have the unexplained ability to provide symbolic clues about immune system function (Ferencik, Novak, Rovensky, 1998; Ferencik, & Stvrtinova,, 1997). These clues can assist in medical arts therapies practices (Achterberg et al., 1994; Brigham, 1994; Dantzer, 1997; Hiramoto et al., 1999; Glaser & Kiecolt–Glaser, 1998; 1999; Malchiodi, 1993, 1999; Naparstek 1994; Spiegel, et al., 1989; Vick & Sexton-Radek, 2005).
