DRAWING YOUR STRESS AWAY:
A Draw-It-Yourself Coloring Book
THE CREATIVE JOURNAL APPROACH

DRAWING YOUR STRESS AWAYWith Drawing Your Stress Away and its companion volume, Hello, This is Your Body Talking, art therapist and educator Dr. Lucia Capacchione presents a new concept in adult coloring: the draw-it-yourself coloring book. Unlike traditional coloring books, which require fine motor control in highly detailed predetermined patterns, Capacchione’s “anti-coloring books” provide the inspiration for users to make their own art, tune out their inner critics, and take the training wheels off their natural creativity.

“The draw-it-yourself format, in contrast to that of conventional adult coloring books, offers the reader a handcrafted and personalized journey, rather than one molded to fit an outline created by the author. The exercises – are informed by and imbued with Dr. Capacchione’s wisdom as a longtime Registered Art Therapist. The reader will feel her support.” _Katherine Ziff, author of ArtBreak: A Creative Guide to Joyful and Productive Classrooms

In Drawing Your Stress Away, Capacchione offers gentle drawing and writing prompts that help readers set aside perfectionism, honor their artistic sides, and release emotions. She presents her highly acclaimed method of using the nondominant hand to access right brain emotional expression, intuition and creativity. These activities have been used successfully in support groups for veterans, cancer patients and their caregivers, adults being treated for addictions, PTSD and other challenges. Art therapy and mindfulness techniques – including a series designed to encourage great self-care – guide users toward a more peaceful state of being.

No one else will be grading or criticizing what you draw and write. This is a personal journal, a place to sort out your feelings and thoughts without pressure from others. Keeping a personal journal is especially valuable when you are faced with challenges. Expressing feelings in the safety of a private journal will help you think more clearly and sort out your values and what actions to take.

Doing the activities in this workbook will also help you communicate more clearly with others. You’ll have /words /for expressing how you feel, what you need, what you want, and what you want to do. As you become more aware of your own feelings you will also learn to be more aware of the feelings of others. Emotional awareness leads to more mutual respect and better relationships.

The techniques in this workbook include drawing and writing with your dominant as well as your nondominant hand. This method has been shown to help balance the hemispheres of the brain and lead to more creativity, social and emotional awareness, resilience and the ability to set goals and reach them. You do not have to have talent, skill or training in the arts to benefit from this method. No one will see what you do in this private journal, so critiques and judgment are not an issue here. This is a place to relax and be yourself.
