DR DORIS CHAN IS INVITED TO INTRODUCE THE “PAINTING THERAPY” AND COMMENT A PAINTING IN “EAST WEEK” MAGAZINE

DR DORIS CHAN IS INVITED TO INTRODUCE THE “PAINTING THERAPY” AND COMMENT A PAINTING IN “EAST WEEK” MAGAZINE

“East Week” has interviewed a female artist, who was suffering from depression, picked up her childhood interest in painting for not only cultivating her temperament, but also healing emotional illness.
During the interview, she demonstrated the watercolour painting and completed a drawing.
 
MindHealth Psychiatrist Specialist Clinic - East Week - Painting Therapy Intro
 
“Painting is good for expressing your emotions. You may shift the focus from your unhappiness to things that you like, in order to make yourself happy,” Psychiatrist Doris Chan said.
In addition, some changes in emotional patients can be observed from the style of painting. For example, when the patient is depressed, the painting style is relatively dark. The reason is that the patient usually sees the black and white world during depression. When the patient feels better, the colour tone will gradually increase so the world drawn will gradually become colourful.
 
Take the above picture as an example, the painter drew a red leaf tree by watercolour painting. Dr Doris Chan analyzes the mind as follow:
“This painting looks like depicting the autumn scenery. It shows some maple leaves falling, which is calm. I believe that the painter is calm too. However, autumn is not a very energetic season. I hope that after the leaves have fallen in autumn, then sprouts grow in spring. The emotion will be similar to this so that it is new and refreshing.”
 
躁鬱症

躁鬱症

「我的心情將坐在過山車一樣,一時好像天上的煙火,滿天燦爛;一時好像跌進萬丈深淵,無法自拔。」一位病人訴說着他過往的經歷。

躁鬱症 (Bipolar Affective Disorder) 是情緒病的一種。在狂躁 (mania) 或輕狂躁 (hypomania) 時,病人會發現自己的情緒波動大於常人。有時候,情緒會非常高漲,覺得自己充滿自信,精力充沛,做事勇往直前,不顧後果。有些人會覺得自己很富有,於是購買了很多沒有用的東西,「碌爆卡」變得負債纍累。病人往往感覺自己的思潮如泉湧,思想很敏捷,於是說話也突然增多。有些病人不停說話直至聲音沙啞。他們還會非常活躍,一天到晚忙個不停,一早出門,很晚才回家。他們對性的需求可能突然多了,有時會胡亂結交異性,甚至與之發生關係。

情況更嚴重的時候,可能會出現幻聽,聽到被讚美的說話。有些病人也會妄想自己跟某政經人物/神/魔鬼有特殊關係,妄想他是該人物的家屬、情侶或使者等等。

病人在情緒高漲時,也可能做一些很高風險的事。我有一位病人,在九七樓市高峰期的時候買下了樓花,結果無法完成交易,被迫剎訂。最後還被發展商追討差價,令病人及家屬苦不堪言。

經過一段時間,這部過山車便會從頂峰滑落,直衝落低谷。病人會變得情緒低落,沒精打采,整天覺得疲憊不堪。思想會變得很緩慢,無法集中精神,記性比以前差。覺得自己很沒用,做事沒有信心。還會避開家人朋友,躲在房裏,整天只想躺在床上。多數患者會比以往更少說話。睡覺的時候常常睡不着,睡得不安穩。總覺得將來沒有希望,做人沒有意思,覺得負累了家人。此外,還會有很多身體不適,擔心自己患上了不治之症,例如癌症之類。既然覺得生活好無意義,備受折磨,有些病人更會興起自殺的念頭。

這樣的周期有機會不斷重複,令病人及家屬極之頭痛。

整體而言,躁鬱症的終生病發率為1-3%。根據世界衛生組織估計,在全球291種疾病及意外中,躁鬱症導致傷亡率排行第46。根據美國一項調查,70%的病人在狂躁 (mania)或輕狂躁 (hypomania) 的時候,感覺到生活受到嚴重的影響達70%;在抑鬱的周期時,這比例更達到90%。

由於這種病的病情十分複雜,並非一般簡單的方法便可以達到舒緩的效果,若懷疑身邊家人或朋友有此問題,應盡早帶他們到精神科醫生接受評估及治療。
