Art Therapy integrates the fields of human development, visual art (drawing, painting, sculpture, and other art forms), within the creative process with models of counseling and psychotherapy. Art Therapy is used with children, adolescents, adults, senior citizens, groups, and families.
Art Therapy programs are found in a number of settings including hospitals, clinics, public and community agencies, wellness centers, educational institutions, businesses, and private practices.
How does it work?
Art Therapy is based on the belief that the creative process helps people to resolve conflicts and problems, develop interpersonal skills, manage behavior, reduce stress, increase self-esteem and self-awareness and achieve insight.
What art making can do is illuminate or bring to consciousness the inner conflicts or self defeating thought patterns that get in the way of a person becoming a fully integrated and healthy individual.
