11Art therapy is based on the natural relationship between art and the mind. It offers a non-intrusive and engaging alternative to traditional counseling.
In general, art therapy is well suited for those of us who would rather create with our own hands than reflect on abstract ideas. It is not necessary to have any kind of art training.
As human beings, projecting ourselves into the future is one of the most remarkable abilities we possess. Creating images of events to come — whether real or wished for —is a powerful tool that we can use in all aspects of our lives. Pictures also help revisiting scenes of our past which have stripped us of our self-determination power.
