Art Therapy Series I
Art Therapy is a psychodynamic therapeutic approach that uses the non-verbal language of art making and verbal communication for personal growth, insight, healing and transformation. Using the creative process in a therapeutic setting enhances our ability to make meaning out of our experiences and reconcile emotional conflicts. Art creations record and hold our hopes, dreams, emotions and conflicts as we find new ways of healing and repair. Some benefits include: positive changes in the body, enhanced resilience, increased coping skills, stress reduction, improved mood and outlook, enhanced brain-functioning, decreased depression, and increased ability to articulate emotions.
