Who Can Benefit from Art Therapy?

Art Therapy is an effective treatment for children, adolescents and adults experiencing anxiety and other developmental, medical, educational, psychological or social impairments. No artistic skills are necessary since creating imagery is a language inherent to all individuals. Everyone has the ability to express emotions, feelings and thoughts using their inner language of imagery.

What is Art Therapy?

"Art therapy is based on the belief that the creative process involved in the making of art is healing and life enhancing.  Through creating art and talking about art and the process of art making with an art therapist, one can increase awareness of self, cope with symptoms, stress and traumatic experiences, enhance cognitive abilities and enjoy the life-affirming pleasures of artistic creativity." 
- The American Art Therapy Association

Why is Art Therapy Different?

Art Therapy is a mental health profession in which clients, facilitated by the professionally trained art therapist, use art materials and the creative process to develop symbols and metaphors in their resulting artwork which produces the vehicle for expression and communication of inner thoughts and feelings. The art therapist guides the client in constructively analyzing their resulting artwork in order to gain insight and awareness, improve functioning and restore a sense of personal well being.
