Sample text

Froggatt (1997) suggests that the hospice culture offers what might be described as a ‘rites of passage’ model that facilitates the transitions of the liminal dying or bereaved. Little et al. (1998) emphasize that liminality is ‘a major category of the experience of cancer illness’. Rites of passage, ritual and liminality are important aspects of therapy where therapists can act as ‘ritual elders’ facilitating transformation (Moore 1991, 2001). Kenny (1996) recounts how Ruud (1995) described music therapy as modern ‘rites de passage’ and associated liminality with improvization.

Past time and present time’, allowing for ‘a temporary defense against timelessness in its traumatic, fragmenting aspect’, and helping patients face mortality and experience the duality of ‘end’ and ‘endlessness’. Bakhtin (2000: 84) uses the term chronotope, meaning ‘time space’, to refer to ‘the intrinsic connectedness of temporal and spatial relationships that are artistically expressed in literature’. Perhaps Bakhtin’s (2000) concept of the ‘chronotope’ could be applied to the artwork that embodies clients’ expression of ‘time space’.

Perhaps, as discussed further in Chapter 4, art therapy can provide a constructive heterotopic crisis space that can reduce stigma. Foucault (1986: 25) suggests that the heterotopia is ‘capable of juxtaposing in a single real place several spaces, several sites that are in themselves incompatible’ and can take the form of ‘contradictory sites’. Perhaps in art therapy contradictory artworks, or symbol meanings within artworks, can coexist. In art therapy artwork enables symbolic expression of ‘seemingly contradictory ideas and feelings simultaneously’, thus accommodating potentially ambivalent feelings about cancer (Miller 1996: 133).
