Have You Considered the Benefits of Art Therapy?
In verbal therapy, a person can edit their words, but because this isn’t nearly as likely in art therapy, the process is quicker. In other words, a skilled art therapist can understand and interpret the symbolic representations in the art.
The benefits of art therapy include resolving core issues and conflicts, as well as fostering self-awareness and growth. Art not only provides people with a means of expression, when words are too difficult, but it is also very healing.
I am not only a Licensed Marriage and Family therapist, but I am also registered with the Art Therapy Credentials Board, which means that I am a Clinical Art Therapist/Art Psychotherapist who has the training to look for deep and personal meaning in the art. This is very different than just using art to make one feel better, even though that can also be part of the art therapy experience.
Art therapy and its benefits have been effective with:
- Individuals who have difficulty articulating their feelings
- Psychotic Disorders
- Substance-related Disorders
- Autistic Disorders
- Gender Identity Issues
You Will Find the Benefits of Art Therapy Very Rewarding…
Art therapy is an extremely successful modality in just about any situation.
If you are tired of verbal therapy, or if you are interested in the unique benefits of art therapy, give me a call. I’d love to meet you.
