using art in therapy
Particularly when working with children and young people, art and creativity can provide an easier and more accessible way for expression and communication than just using words. Within this context, art can also function as a medium to address emotional issues. The chance to express oneself in an open and supportive environment can enhance well-being and positively impact on the educational, social and psychological development of young people.
Due to their focus, art therapy sessions differ from art lessons or creative activities, although they can be enjoyable.
Clients do not need to have any previous experience or talents.
