Art Therapy Has Many Faces

by Judith Aron Rubin
This video provides an introductory glimpse into the exciting and dynamic world of art therapy. With footage from art therapy sessions conducted all over the world and spanning several decades, you’ll see the diversity of the field and the many benefits to incorporating an art therapy approach into your practice.


Art Therapy Has Many Faces
Art for healing is as ancient as the drawings on the walls of caves. Famous artists like Vincent Van Gogh, Jackson Pollock and Frida Kahlo used art to cope with their anguish. Now the practice of art as healing is a growing discipline that has been effective in helping those suffering schizophrenia, cancer, depression, trauma, grief, autism, physical or mental disability, AIDS and neurological disorders, among others. Further, art therapy can be used with children, families, the elderly, couples and groups.

In this video, you will be introduced to two major branches of art therapy: the use of art as a healing method unto itself, and the use of art as a tool in the psychotherapy process. In either approach, art therapy provides a way for clients to tell without talking, and a new way for therapists to listen.
