Das menschliche Gehirn kennt viele Wege sich einzurichten, im Alltag und im Fernsehsessel. Wie kein anderes ist es dazu fähig, aus neuen Erfahrungen Erinnerungen zu machen und Können zu erwerben.

Environmental music aims to influence and enhance the environment of the clients. She cites a series of tapes created by the music therapist to assist in the reduction of ‘general agitation and choreic movements’ (Dawes, 1987:4). The aims of the activity-orientated music therapy are to improve and maintain physical, intellectual and psychosocial functioning. The emphasis here is on non-verbal and verbal communication, or cognitive skills such as memory, concentration, relaxation and social interaction.

This refers to key areas of the training of an art therapist as including the psychology of mark making and symbolism, non-verbal communication, a psychotherapeutic understanding of child development and family dynamics. The art therapists draw on their knowledge of these diverse areas to enable change for the people they work with. Lanham captures something present in all these definitions when he argues that the products of art therapy, though they may not be seen in public, are as essential as any ‘great’ work of art in art galleries: They may, even when kept in a drawer, have a real life and meaning for the person or group involved in their creation and through this make a greater contribution to our society…this broader concept of art, including all creative utterances by all people, is not a new one.
Themes such as group members caring about others’ opinions and issues of power are engendered and explored. These come to the fore, ‘by my taking an analytic role rather than a leadership role’ (Skaife, 1990:242).

Themes are identified by Skaife as including a challenge to the therapist, being directly angry, whilst at the same time being afraid of abandonment and being left to the aggressive impulses of one another.
