Art Therapy / Counseling

What is Art Therapy?

The American Art Therapy Association (AATA) defines art therapy as "an established mental health profession that uses the creative process of art making to improve and enhance the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of individuals of all ages." Entry into the field requires a master's degree and institutional accreditation must be gained by a university or college in order for their Art Therapy degree to be valid. Art Therapists are trained to provide a safe space for children to use creative expression in both individual and group sessions. It also provides meaningful sensory experiences, symbolic expression, emotional expression, life enhancement, cognitive development, and social connectedness. Art Therapists are a wonderful part of the wellness center team.
