Art Therapy

Art Therapy is the use of artistic methods to improve mental health and treat certain psychological disorders. It comes a surprise to most people that art can be a technique of treating mental illnesses. But, art has the power to help people express themselves better, overcome stress and gain insights into different aspects of their personality.

The underlying premise of this form of therapy is that art or creative expression fosters healing and improves mental wellbeing. This therapy helps the individual develop awareness of himself or herself, explore his or her deep emotions and enhance social skills either by creating art or viewing other’s works.

What are the techniques used in this therapy ?
