I got into art because I was seeing a psychotherapist for a personality disorder diagnosis, OCD, chronic physical illnesses (Dystonia and PCOS) and also effects of serious abuse plus a major crisis in my Christian faith at the time. She suggested I try art and I joined a watercolour class. I had no experience of watercolour and am no genius. But I have reached a level of recovery I never thought possible. Fewer meltdowns and episodes of violence and self harm as well as panic attacks. In the beginning of this, In my church someone prayed for me and said she felt art was going to be crucial to my recovery. I was doubtful at the time but it has worked. I now feel less socially anxious too. I have a reason to get up in the mornings!

I also have PTSD and anxiety. I started an adult coloring group. There is no mental heath professional involved. I find our sessions very therapeutic. My stress and anxiety is greatly reduced during our coloring sessions. I feel relaxed, calm and hopeful and wish I could have more sessions with other people. This is more than art ?

My project is about how to get rid of stress- and I chose art therapy. I got all the info down, but just wondering, is art therapy actually proven? I researched and found that it depends on the type of people… but was there any proven research(es) behind it? I got the general information saying that art therapy is useful because it takes you mind off what’s bothering you. So it’s good for mental disorders. (anxiety, tension, etc.) But in order to present my project more convincingly, I want to know if there is any proof of art therapy. It would be really helpful if I got this one point for my project. 🙂

I’m getting back into school and am attempting to narrow down a degree to focus on. The one thing that has been consistent in my life is my love of writing. That involves for me, poetry and screenwriting.
This said, I have an interest in counseling. I like to think that I can be of some help to someone else. I mean, what other way to benefit your life by helping someone else’s?
Being creative and having gone through some counseling myself. I see benefits in both. Creating, self expression is a great outlet and one on one counseling, even group therapy, which I am a huge fan of, is a great tool for thought provoking self enlightenment. It’s awesome to learn from each other’s own journeys. Is it possible to learn from each other’s creativity? Not only learn about ourselves in the process but have other’s gain something from your creative self expression? This goes back to a form of group therapy.
So my question is… Is it possible to use the art of filmmaking, the storytelling aspect, writing, acting directing and so on as a form of art therapy and what could the clients benefit from it? I just need more clarity in what I would wish to accomplish by doing this. Basic point. I would like to incorporate my love for film into counseling others.

I graudated Dec2007 with Art major & PSY minor. I maitained very interested in pursuing a Masters in ArtTherapy…leading up to graduation. Although my advisors failed to mention that this feild may be a harder journey to follow. Considering it fairly new feild of study, unknown, not covered under insurance(not that I know of)and not being widely used in healthcare facilities. Than made it very difficult to have ambition towards another degree that may not as financially rewarding. My peers and family have expressed their concerns and doubts, all my evidence or research hasn’t backed up that this could be a prominent career plan. I have had some opportunity in related work doin a Children’s Therapuetic Summer camp in Maryland which was very self-rewarding but because of budget and relocation it wasnt something I could continue on. That program did accept Mecaid or state insurance as form of payment for children to attend. Not sure how I even goin about doing that but I know I have to have credability to back it up. I feel that there aren’t enough jobs or career options for me without a Masters and swiching career paths. I have strongly considered becoming a Nutrional Consultant, then a Holistic Health Practioner through online but my fears are stopping me from moving forward. I do feel that this is the big healthcare movement. How do I get in the market with low demand??? Any advice would be great!

I was searching for all the info I can find regarding ar therapy. My background is in teaching K-8 Art for many years, also working with children with special needs for years and now I am pursuing my M.A.C., and doing work in a school with autistic children.
Having said all that, I am very interested in getting some specialized certification in addition to my LMHP as an Art therapist. I live in an University city but I am not aware of any art therapists here, (nothing found online ) nor any classes for such nearby.
After speaking to my advisors at the college I am attending now, art therapy is not something they have much advice in which they can help me.
So, I am asking you,,what do I need to do after I graduate with my Master’s in Counseling,,do you have to be licensed to use art as part of the therapy sessions with my backgound teaching and in using the materials and having the Masters in Counseling.
Thank you for your help!
Cynthia

I just wanted to say that I LOVE your blog! I graduated from high school a year early to get a jump start in college. I am currently a fine art major with a psychology minor. Though, next year I want to transfer to NYU to continue my education. Eventually I plan to get a Master’s in art therapy. I love art therapy… It helped save my life. I myself suffer from PTSD and major depression due to some unfortunate incidences in my life. Art therapy has helped me heal so much I am adament about persuing a career in it and having my own practice someday to help victims of sexual abuse.

I am very young, but have experienced lots of life tribulations starting early (age 12). My biggest advice to anyone out there who is struggling is to find a positive healing outlet (mine is art therapy) and run with it. Don’t feel stuck, because life gets easier in time. Time heals all.

Thank you for sharing the blog:)
Take care, Rachel.

I have always been aware of the benefits I have felt myself using my art as a form of escape, now I am also interested in studying this further and making a career out of art therapy. I am currently trying to create a package as part of my course that I could take around schools to help with Children who find it difficult being in school and have disruptive behaviour for one reason or another.If you know of any statistics I could refer to, to show that Art Therapy is actually a successful resourse that would be great. Also I have a meeting organised with a therapeutic arts worker coming up soon, is this simply a difference in title or are there some major differences?

As it happens, I’m completing an art and design course with painting as my speciality and this seems like the perfect follow-on! Sadly my father has recently developed dementia and I have seen how distressing it can be on not only him, but also my mother who has to care for him. I would be very interested in working with older people, therefore I believe art therapy would be a wonderful way of giving them the opportunity for self-expression.

I’ve stumbled upon your wonderful site while doing research for a presentation that I have been putting together for a few months now. I am presenting a slideshow of works of art done during art therapy sessions and information about art therapy and its benefits to individuals that partake in it. However, I have been searching painstakingly with no luck for some sort of graph or chart that shows exactly how many indivudals have actually benefitted from art therapy, or at least any sort of list of percentages of of people that felt a positive impact on their lives due to art therapy.

Do you know of any sites that would be able to supply this information?

I really want to prove to my audience that there is hard evidence that art therapy really does work!

Thank you!
