Recovery as Art, Part Two

What I'm Not Saying...

I am not saying that intuition is a useful way to evaluate treatment techniques before using them.

What I am saying....

I am saying that an artistic approach to the fundamental question of Recovery (what do I do next on this path?) better serves the purposes of the Recovery Model, which are not to prove or disprove any particular theory of mental illness or its treatment, or any particular technique of treatment or support. Rather, the purpose of Recovery is to

Create a unique history by, and explore the talents and possibilities of, a single unique human being

How does an artistic strategy support such a purpose?
