Creative Arts Therapy

What is Creative Arts Therapy?

Creative Arts Therapy utilizes art as  the modality of psychotherapy.  The art  therapy practice is based on  psychological theory and human  development. It is a therapeutic  treatment that fosters self-awareness,  reduces anxiety, develops social skills  and reconciles emotional conflicts. The  art therapy process allows the individual to express their inner  thoughts and feelings through the  expression of art. This spontaneous  process utilizes both emotional and  symbolic communication.

The art therapy session provides  media exploration and both verbal and  non-verbal expression using a variety  of art materials. Clients will fully  experience the art, and create  paintings, sculptures, writings and  drawings. The art therapy process explores all areas of the client’s life.   The goal of the art therapy is to assist  with the challenges that the individual  is facing and recognize how this may be impacting the client’s school, work,  social life, self-esteem, and overall  stress level. The client will identify  triggers, feelings and emotions.   Together, the therapist and client will  develop coping skills to assist the  individual to better manage his or her  life.
