Alicia, I studied Art Therapy for two years at the College of Notre Dame in Belmont California, and because I already had two Masters Degrees and two certifications in other therapeutic modalities, opted to go on to get my doctorate rather than do another internship to get my Art Therapy Cert. I understand the difference between Art Therapy and Therapeutic Art Activities and I believe that people need the education in order to implement directives appropriately in therapeutic settings. I also believe in sharing directives with others because that is how we expand our clinical tool boxes. I am no longer able to find the time to share new activities consistently on this site but hope the ones that I did post continue to help others provide appropriate and healing treatment to their clients.
Warmly, Dr. Deah

I admit, I’ve taken a few of your ideas in to my therapist to see how we can tailor them to my situation. I’ll talk to him about this one tomorrow.
It’s been awhile since I’ve been over here but I’m never disappointed.

I work on an Eating Disorder recovery unit. While I am not an Art Therapist (yet), I do run a “Creative Expression” group. I am SO excited to use this activity for the next holiday! I don’t care if that’s Arbor Day, I’m using this soon!

Thank you for this contribution!

I am an art therapist and have many co-workers who use art as therapy and who use art materials in therapy but that is not art therapy. You have to be an art therapist with a masters degree in art therapy to be able to say you are providing art therapy.

Unless I missed a credential, Dr. Schwartz is not an art therapist.

This issue may seem minor to some but as an art therapist who worked very hard for her degree there needs to be more mindfulness when throwing around the term art therapy. please.
