Art therapy and family therapy - A possible combination? (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att undersöka om och hur bildterapi kan kombineras med familjeterapi samt vad, i så fall, bildterapi kan tillföra. Intervjuer genomfördes med sju psykoterapeuter som kombinerar dessa två terapiformer i arbete med par och familjer. Vid sidan om intervjustudien genomfördes en litteraturstudie för att inventera, för studien, relevant litteratur och forskningsläge.

Resultatet av studien visar att bildterapi och familjeterapi kombineras och att bildterapi kan vara ett bra komplement till familjeterapi. Det finns likheter mellan vissa familjeterapeutiska och bildterapeutiska interventioner som gör terapiformerna kompatibla. Övningar som innebär externalisering, gestaltning och omstrukturering är exempel på detta. Bildterapin kan fungera utjämnande mellan vuxna och barn, på så sätt att barn, oftare än vuxna, är vana vid att uttrycka sig i bild och att det verbala övertag de vuxna ofta besitter, vägs upp av barnens rikare tillgång till bildspråk. Bildterapi kan generellt sett hjälpa barn att få sin röst hörd i terapirummet.

Bildterapin är till hjälp för synliggörandet av relationella mönster i familjen eller i parrelationen. Såväl psykoterapeut som klienter blir hjälpta av detta. Synliggörandet sker både i bildskapandet och i samtalet om bilden.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to examine whether and how art therapy is combined with family therapy, as well as what art therapy in such cases can bring. Seven psychotherapists combining these two therapies in their work with couples and families, was interviewed.

In addition to the interview study, a literature review was carried out for inventory of relevant literature and research.

Results of the study shows that art therapy and family therapy are combined, and that art therapy can be a good complement to family therapy. There are similarities between some family therapy and art therapy interventions that make the therapy forms compatible. Interventions that involve externalization, sculpting and restructuring are examples of this. Art therapy can work balancing between adults and children, as children, more often than adults are accustomed to express themselves in artmaking, and that the verbal advantage of the adults can be balanced by children´s richer access to imagery. Art therapy can generally help children to get their voice heard in the therapy room.

Art therapy is helpful for visualization of relational patterns in the family or couple relation.

Both psychotherapist and clients are helped by this. The visualization occurs both in image making and in the talk about the picture.
