Art therapy allows expression of thoughts and feelings through creativity. Art therapy can provide personal and relationship growth, increase self-esteem, self awareness, and confidence. The expert art therapists at Kaizen Center use this treatment in conjunction with Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
What are the benefits of art therapy?
There are numerous benefits of art therapy. Through the use of art therapy, clients often discover hidden thoughts and feelings that prevent motivation for change. Clients young and old can benefit from the insights and healing that come from this method. In combination with verbal therapy, it can help those who experience issues related to relationships, emotional upheavals and trauma, among other things. It is not an art lesson but is a simple process that does not require talent. Clients who find they have artistic and creative talents can explore the creation of meaning through creative expression as well.
How does art therapy work?
Art therapy uses self-expression to heal, uncover deeper self-understanding, and improve cognitive connections. Art therapists understand how symbols, color, texture, and art media help in the healing process. They help clients uncover how these elements reveal thoughts, feelings, and mental state.
KCMH implements art therapy in conjunction with ACT as a way to address problems in life. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy teaches the use of powerful skills that creates a clear path to overcoming problems such as depression, anxiety, panic attacks, trauma, substance use, and many more symptoms.
