Art Therapy
Dillon’s definition of Art Therapy:

“Art therapy integrates psychology and the creative process of art-making to provide an alternative approach to addressing, processing and mending social, emotional and psychological difficulties.

Art therapy utilizes the power of visual expression to externalize distressing thoughts, feelings, painful memories and experiences to aid in closure, increase self-awareness and promote verbal expression. Anyone can benefit from art therapy; no matter the age, ability or artistic experience.”
