A guide for Art Therapy students.


This guide provides links to resources on the subject of Art Therapy. 

The American Art Therapy Association defines Art Therapy as  "a mental health profession that uses the creative process of art making to improve and enhance the physical, mental and emotional well-being of individuals of all ages. It is based on the belief that the creative process involved in artistic self-expression helps people to resolve conflicts and problems, develop interpersonal skills, manage behavior, reduce stress, increase self-esteem and self-awareness, and achieve insight."
