Description of Art Therapy
Art therapy combines the creative process and psychotherapy. Art therapists are trained in psychotherapy, and include various art activities within their sessions to help facilitate self-exploration and understanding. Thoughts and feelings may be expressed via imagery, color and shape that could otherwise be difficult to articulate.
Art therapy is not only for "kids" or for "artists". anyone can benefit from art therapy; it has been used with a variety of populations- from young kids to the elderly, war veterans to prisoners, and people with physical disabilities to those with psychological disorders. In art therapy, we are not concerned with making artistic masterpieces, but rather seek to gain new awareness via the process of art-making. The art created in sessions is very simple and quick. yet it opens up new and profound insights that can show the way forward when we are confronted by various challenges in life.
