What is Art Therapy?
“Art therapy helps people express their feelings when words cannot,” explains Sarah Deaver, president of the American Art Therapy Association (AATA).
Art therapy is just what it sounds like. It is the combination of therapy and art, facilitated by a trained professional, to help people improve their level of functioning. It is beneficial to people who experience trauma, illness or challenges and to people who seek personal development and insight. Through creating art and reflecting on the process and results, people gain a new window into their own experience. (source: ATCB website)
This psychoeducational workshop is intended as an introduction to what Art Therapy is and can do, but is not intended to replace an actual therapeutic relationship. While the facilitator is a trained Art Therapist, the group does not include diagnosis or formal treatment of any mental illness or disorder.
Art Therapy sponsored by Thumbs Up. Therapy provided by Art Lab RX and Parasol Wellness Collaborative.
