✔️Start with a blank piece of paper and a pen. Ask group members to start scribbling all over their pages, in a way that allows for lots of lines to overlap.
✔️Take a step back, and observe the page of scribbles. Rotate the page and keep looking, allowing different images to emerge naturally.
✔️Start coloring in sections that stand out, gradually allowing a larger image or images to come forward.
✔️After people are finished, invite them to title and share the story of their image. This could be a fable or myth, or it could be a description of an emotion. Does it relate in any way to your recovery? If so, how?
We had an intense process group in the morning, and this was a helpful exercise in allowing a more creative outlet for expression and release. The images are purposely disjointed and disconnected, a healthy challenge for clients who struggle with perfectionism or a need for control.
