What is Art Therapy?

Art therapy is a form of psychotherapy that allows for emotional expression and healing through nonverbal means. Children unlike most adults, often cannot easily express themselves verbally. Adults, on the other hand may use words to intellectualize and distance themselves from their emotions. Art therapy enables the client to break through these cumbersome barriers to self expression using simple art materials. No previous art experience is necessary to participate in art therapy.Want to know more about what Art Therapy is?
