The article provides an analysis of literature data, which makes it possible to substantiate the assumption that the art-therapeutic neurographic technique causes a positive effect in everyday and, importantly, in clinical practice, and also makes it clear that the individual steps of the algorithm are reasonable from the point of view of the physiological effect on the stress response. Neuro-graphics stand out from a number of art-therapeutic methods due to the presence of a clear algorithm and accessibility even for those who have no habits of skill and even a penchant for drawing. The author of the article considers the individual steps of the algorithm in the light of modern scientific data on the effect of drawing techniques in clinical practice and gives its own data of the initiated research on the effects of neurography when working with women undergoing chemotherapy in relation to oncological diagnosis. The article is a literary review of publications of Russian and foreign studies on the use of art therapy, in particular drawing, in situations of stress. To study the effects of neurography in the practice of working with oncological patients, methods were chosen that assess levels of stress, anxiety, depression, mood, and quality of life. The main conclusion of the literature review and practical results of use is that neurography has the ability to activate the maximum number of points of impact on stress reduction and helps to change the subjective perception of the situation, to form new ideas that enable a person to take qualitatively new actions. Such effects may be useful in a clinical setting, including in cancer patients.
