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.
The creative process involved in expressing oneself artistically can help people to resolve issues as well as develop and manage their behaviours and feelings, reduce stress, and improve self-esteem and awareness. You don’t need to be talented or an artist to receive the benefits.
Art therapy can achieve different things for different people. It can be used for counselling, healing, treatment, rehabilitation, psychotherapy, and in a broad sense, provide the individual with a deeper understanding of him or herself.
This therapy is being offered to families and children who have experienced domestic abuse.
