Art Therapy

Art therapists elicit their clients’ inherent capacity for drawing, painting, sculpture, and other art forms to enhance their physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Through the creative process, the client develops social skills, reduces anxiety, increases self-esteem, reconciles emotional conflicts, and improves a sense of well-being. Art therapy is practiced in a wide variety of settings including hospitals, psychiatric and rehabilitation facilities, wellness centers, forensic institutions, schools, crisis centers, senior communities, private practice, and other clinical and community settings.
