Art Therapy provides the client with critical insight into emotions, thoughts, mental health issues and feelings. Art Therapy can help a person visually express emotions and fears that they cannot express through conventional means.
Art Therapy is often prescribed for chronically and terminally ill patients to help them cope with pain. It can promote physiological healing when patients identify and work through anger, resentment, and other emotional stressors.
Other benefits of Art Therapy include emotional releasing or healing, increased awareness of self, increased ability to cope with traumatic experiences, increased personal fulfillment and confidence. Art Therapy also promotes relaxation and is great for relieving stress.
