Art Therapy

Course Description:

Art is a powerful tool in communication and a medium that expresses more than words. Art expression is a way to visually communicate thoughts and feelings that are too painful to put into words. Art Therapy is used in a wide variety of settings with children, adults, families, and groups. It may be used as an adjunct to treatment, where drawing activities and other expressive media are helpful in the assessment and treatment of people of all ages. A client's feelings and experiences are transformed into concrete and tangible images, allowing both the client and the therapist to obtain a fresh view of problems, conflicts, potentials, and directions.

While other forms of therapies are effective, Art Therapy is increasingly being used by therapists to help individuals quickly communicate relevant issues and problems, thus expediting assessment and intervention. Art Therapy is rapidly becoming an intervention of choice with a variety of disorders. Ideal for counsellors and social workers.
