Art Therapy is a form of psychotherapy where the art therapist has been trained to use visual art making (drawing & painting & sculpture) therapeutically to help the person work through specific issues of difficulties and help them to understand their relationships with family/whanau and friends. Art Therapy helps to improve physical, mental and emotional well-being. You need no experience in art making to engage in art therapy and find it useful, as the focus is on the creative process not a finished product.
Art therapy is especially useful for children and people with disabilities who may find talking therapies too challenging.
