the history, how through creating art and reflection on the process and product within the therapeutic relationship people can take away a tool which may help - Basically anybody can do Art Therapy! It does not require any artistic ability or previous experience in art.
Art Therapy is a non-intrusive therapy aimed at building, restoring and maintaining the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual well-being of people.
Based on the belief that the creative processes involved in self-expression through the arts are healing and life-enhancing, art therapy combines psychotherapeutic support from a therapist with the exploration of issues using art materials and practices.
It is a powerfully liberating and helpful therapeutic modality. As art media are used as its primary mode of communication, art therapy is suitable for individuals of all ages, cultures and abilities.
The overall aim of Art Therapists is to provide a safe, supportive and encouraging environment for clients to use art materials and promote life-enhancing change and personal growth.
