Therapy by means of creative self-expression by M. E. Burno

Self-Expression (prepared by the Secretary of Odessa Centre of Therapy by Creative Self-Expression, M. Raskina)

     Self-help techniques that use creative self-expression have been developed by Russian psychotherapist, professor at the Russian Medical Academy of post-graduate education, and vice president of the All-Russian Professional Psychotherapeutic Association, M. E. Burno. He is an author of the clinical modality «Therapy Using Creative Self-Expression by Burno (TCEB)».
     TCEB is meant, most of all, to help people who suffer from feelings of inferiority, that manifest themselves in mental and physical inertness, shyness, indecisiveness, anxiety, hypochondria, depressive vulnerability, inclinations to doubts, and uncertainty in oneself, among others. M. E. Burno describes all of these character traits as «defensiveness». A defensive individual is usually lost in life, in his/her thoughts about the meaning of his/her life, and in dreams of some mental and spiritual support.
