Art Therapy is a growing field, which began by treating children and adults, who were emotionally scarred and/or physically disabled, with art and its creative process. In addition to its many benefits, many different types of people have been using Art Therapy for years.
This therapy is the deliberate use of art-making to address psychological and emotional needs. Art Therapy uses art media and the creative process to help in areas such as, self-expression, coping skills, stress management , and strengthened sense of identity. Art Therapy has provided mental health treatment for clients who have experienced trauma, grief & loss, depression, chronic illness, substance abuse, and more.
