MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
Within the framework of the Day of Coloring Plans for the Future, celebrated annually on February 5, the staff of the psychological laboratory of IK-1 carried out psycho-preventive measures with convicts, in order to visually illustrate their own plans for the future after release.
– In the process of projecting your plans on paper, a feeling of reassurance is acquired, because the future is like a blank sheet, uncertain, ambiguous. When making plans for the future, they must be transferred to paper. But it is on this “day of decorating plans for the future” that one should think that serious and reliable plans will not warm and delight the soul as much as colorful, bright and colorful ones, ”said psychologist Natalia Dragel.
The art therapy method was used as a technique in the lesson. The convicts talked about their plans for the future after their release, the goals they want to achieve, and illustrated them with the help of colored pencils.
