What Is It? Popular?? Art Therapists Important
Details Would we try it? Would we recommend Art therapy?
Yes, we would recommend art therapy due to the fact that you have the ability to express your feelings and your creativity through art. It gives you a chance to make things your own and build your imagination. Photos Art Therapy Art therapy is a form of expressive therapy that uses the creative process of making art to improve a person’s physical, mental, and emotional well-being.

Art therapy can help people to resolve issues as well as develop and manage their behaviors and feelings, reduce stress, and improve self-esteem and awareness.

Art therapy utilizes more traditional forms of art…such as painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, or a variety of other types of visual art expression. Art as therapy is generally used as a treatment for something – usually as a way to improve one’s emotional state or mental well-being.
This therapy doesn’t always have to be used only as a treatment.
It can be used to relieve stress or tension. It can also be used as a mode of self-discovery.

Art therapists are trained to pick up on nonverbal symbols and metaphors that are often expressed through art and the creative process. It is through this process that the individual really begins to see the effects of art therapy and the discoveries that can be made.

Art therapists are professionals trained in both art and therapy. They are knowledgeable about human development, psychological theories, clinical practice, spiritual, multicultural and artistic traditions, and the healing potential of art. They use art in treatment, assessment and research, and provide consultations to allied professionals.
Art therapy is very popular in the mental health department. As an expressive medium, art can be used to help clients communicate, overcome stress and explore different aspects of their own personality. Children with learning disabilities

Art therapy involves the creation of art in order to increase awareness of self and others. This in turn may promote personal development, increase coping skills, and enhance cognitive function. It is based on personality theories, human development, psychology, family systems, and art education. Art therapy integrates psychotherapeutic techniques with the creative process to improve mental health and well-being. The American Art Therapy Association describes art therapy as "a mental health profession that uses the creative process of art making to improve and enhance the physical, mental and emotional well-being of individuals of all ages. It is based on the belief that the creative process involved in artistic self-expression helps people to resolve conflicts and problems, develop interpersonal skills, manage behavior, reduce stress, increase self-esteem and self-awareness, and achieve insight." It Works! We would both try art therapy. It would be interesting to experience what it could do or how it could benefit us. We would definitely give it a try. By: Kasi & Josie
