Framed 365 - A PhotoTherapy Techniques / Therapeutic Photography Project
 
This is my project called Framed 365. It is a photo per day for 1 year style project but using PhotoTherapy Techniques as a form of self-exploration. Here is the link: (link removed)it is a Facebook business page therefore if you wish to follow it you will need to click on the "like" button at the top of the page.

I would really appreciate challenging comments / feedback on the images and analysis that I post daily. However, this is not intended to be a project about stunning / perfect photography, instead it is about the analysis and my progress as the project develops.

Here is the blurb I wrote about it from the site:

My name is Amy, I am a trainee Art Psychotherapist in the U.K. I have studied a Masters in Photography and have received level one training from Judy Weiser in PhotoTherapy Techniques.

PhotoTherapy can be defined as the use of photographs to improve well-being in therapy processes and activities in order to improve personal insight and healing.

For the 365 day duration of my project which began on 1st January 2012 I will take and publish one photograph every day with a small paragraph of text detailing my thought process, feelings and/or findings relating to that image. The photograph will be taken in response to one of the five PhotoTherapy Techniques within Judy Weiser's model of PhotoTherapy practice. The use of the techniques will rotate daily.

This project is intended as a process of self-exploration for my own purposes. However, I hope that it may also provide creative inspiration to those who wish to follow my progress. I addition I aim to create an accessible working example of the use of PhotoTherapy Techniques as an insight into the potential benefits of trained therapists using these techniques with clients where appropriate.

I aim to utilise this project to explore the application of PhotoTherapy Techniques from a therapeutic standpoint (as a trainee therapist), however I will be using the techniques on myself, therefore in formal terms this is not PhotoTherapy it is defined as Therapeutic Photography.


I look forward to receiving your comments and feedback. Thank you for your time!

Amy

Hello Amy. Welcome to the 365 forum.

I've removed your link as this forum is for people to post their daily pictures here.
We look forward to seeing some of your images. :)

I was not intending to no Georgepat. Just to receive feedback on the project for those who wish to follow it on Facebook, and also to discuss the idea behind the project with those who are interested.

Perhaps that means that my post is in the wrong section? Could you advise?
