I too have a M.A ( arts psychotherapy). Why did I pay thousands dollars and undertake a 3 year Masters degree??? Well answer is easy really. A very well meaning arts psychotherapist pointed out that although I ran a group (in earlier days) and called it art therapy it was in fact an art AS therapy group something I think Brianna may be commenting on. I decided to explore arts therapy in a much more deeper and grounded way and was appalled at the damage that could and does become inflicted upon children by under qualified and unregistered ‘art therapists’ It was this info which was the deciding factor for me to undertake the study. I feel that there are fabulous and well meaning people who are introducing art into classrooms and other areas this is valuable and very important but should not be confused with a psychotherapeutic intervention. It is clear (hopefully)
Arts Therapy or Psychotherapy OR Art AS Therapy.

If you are not trained you may do more damage to the person/child by your uneducated comments. Art therapy is not just something made up. You must have a background in Psychology & Art before even being admitted to an accreditied art therapy Masters program such as the one at the University of Louisville in Louisville, KY. Expressive therapies is not to be attempted unless you are trained. Now if you want to do art with people, become an art teacher. But do not delve into areas in which you have not been throughly trained.

One of the greatest bennifits of art is that it is theraputic to many people. You do not need a licensed art therapist to bennifit from art.

I am a registered art therapist who completed a masters degress in art therapy and counseling. It is unethical for anyone out side of a liscensed art therapist to be conducting “art therapy sessions” without a license.

Students get a large piece of white paper.Have students pratice first. Play a heavy metal song and have them draw lines taht represent the sounds they hear. Then the same idea with classical. On the final paper have them assign colors to the sounds. Play 4 very different types of music and have them fill the page with lines.When they are finished they can paint the page or color it in. This activity helps them attach colors and lines to emotions. Pandora radio is great for this. I use instumental hip hop, classical, micheal Jackson(in moderation), and guitar rock. Its an extremely fun activity!

That allows you to subscribe to the site through a feed reader of your choice. It also allows you to sign up for email updates…and it only sends you an email when there is a new article. This is definitely the simplest way and shouldn’t change any information on your Google account.

I tired to “sign up’ to get more information and to stay in touch with Art Therpy Ideas. I thought it would be simple. OMG!!! I was sent to some kind of ‘feed burner’ if I recall correctly, that had so much jargon, I had no idea what it was talking about and it wanted more information (most of which was a duplicate) that I had already given them. I already have a google account and I do not want it changed or reconstructed in a different way. I have never heard of any of these terms and feel very frustrated. This is a very twisted route for what ? I just wanted to stay in touch with updates and find out more specific of Art Therapy.
How can I continue to receive information about Art Therapy ( Mandalas in particular) in the SIMPLEST WAY and most straight forward way ?
Thank you for any help you can give me.
E. Jane Taylor

However i feel that it would be better if instrumental music be used as lyrics may divert the students from expressing their true self.

Its refreshing to read about how one teacher did. Thank you for sharing this experience.
