Art therapy can help reduce impairment

  • The processing of the disease
  • The healing process
  • The perception of ourselves and others
  • The joy of life
  • The cooperation between clients and therapists

to rethink, transform, and positively change in the creative process.

Art therapy works through the visual medium: The therapeutically and artistically accompanied design process demands and promotes mental and spiritual abilities. The art therapist not only accompanies but also stimulates, protects against quick assessments, encourages and supports in phases of lack of imagination or personal conflicts. The art therapist is a conversation partner in the search for creative solutions as well as initiators in the analyzing dialogue about the resulting designs.

Through the examination of their own design and raising awareness of its significance created new opportunities in communication with yourself and with others. The resulting work becomes a mirror of personal history, the momentary feeling, and the current way of acting.

In what framework is art therapy carried out?

Art therapy takes place in individual or group therapy. Art therapy in a group enables and promotes work in a larger group of people

  • Mutual creative stimulation and assistance
  • Social learning and thus an expansion of social competence
  • The trusting exchange of artistic and associative topics in a protected therapeutic setting

Since, for example, chronic illnesses are often associated with social withdrawal, group therapy offers a helpful framework.

Individual sessions are indicated for:

  • People who need the protection of the therapeutic relationship between two people to open
  • Persons within a group with a stressful experience
  • People who find it a relief, to artistically express the protective, therapeutic environment and communicate nonverbally
  • People who cannot leave their bed or room for medical reasons during an inpatient stay

In clinical and psychosocial institutions, the art therapeutic work is usually networked with other therapeutic help offers.
