Art therapy is based on the theory that images and image making use a different part of the brain than verbal communication and that they allow for expression/communication we may not be able to express with words. Artmaking that is process rather than product focused is a way of practicing ‘inner listening.’
Group art therapy is for those who want and or need the support of other individuals as they continue therapy work and as they continue a commitment to having a regular time to ‘check in’ with themselves. Issues addressed in the group are determined by those in the group. Group time includes (gently guided) artmaking time in silence and group reflection time (NO ART EXPERIENCE NEEDED).
