How Art Therapy can benefit certain groups:
Children & Adolescents
Children and teens often express their feelings through behaviors. They often react to major changes in their lives by becoming angry, withdrawn, or depressed. They may start having trouble at school, or develop problems in relationships. Art Therapy can help children and their families find positive approaches to these problems. Small art therapy groups can also be designed to address certain issues that children and teens may share.
Families & Couples
Families & Couples can benefit from the use of art therapy during sessions. Art Therapy aids in communication and can help resolve conflicts within relationships.
Adults who feel stuck or have difficulty verbalizing feelings around a particular experience are able to gain new insights following a short course of art therapy. It is also very beneficial when used as an adjunct to talk therapy. Their therapists have reported more in-depth work and speedier progress.
