WHY ART THERAPY MATTERS
MAKING ART AND CONNECTING WITH THE CREATIVE PROCESS IS A POWERFUL WAY TO GAIN INSIGHTS, OFFER NEW PERSPECTIVES, AND ULTIMATELY EFFECT CHANGE AND HEALING.

Art is a powerful tool in articulating difficult-to-express feelings and experiences. While the primary goal in art therapy is therapeutic, the creative process (involving a variety of materials such as paint, clay, pastels, and collage) can give shape and voice to challenging emotional issues, as well as relieve the client of the stress often associated with talk therapy alone.

  • Creative process and psychotherapy are natural allies in healing.
  • Art therapy offers open communication between the unconscious and the conscious Self to provide insight and awareness.
  • Compassion and creativity infuse relationships and groups with energy.
