Art therapy is used as an adjunct to traditional talk psychotherapy. Art therapy enables people to bypass words and visually express their innermost fears and desires, hopes and dreams, problems and concerns. Often seeing how you feel illustrated with lines, colors, and shapes, using various media, in two or three dimensions, helps to contain strong emotions and put problems into perspective. The very act of moving your hands and body to create art is soothing. The finished artwork gives a focal point for talk therapy to begin, speeds healing, and is a concrete record of progress made in therapy.
