Ink illustration made for psychotherapist Ernesto Rathge. The brief was to "heal" the angel from Dürer's engraving, Melancolia I, from depression. This was made for a seminar about Behavioral Activation Treatment for Depression (BATD).
"The BATD program’s primary goal is to reduce depressive symptoms. It is aimed at helping clients reconnect with their values across several life areas. It begins with behavioral monitoring of daily activities with an examination of the extent to which the client currently is living according to these values. In moving the client towards this more valued life, BATD uses a structured approach aimed at identifying activities that fit within the client’s values on a daily basis." (From cebc4cw.org)
