Art Therapy & Recovery [INFOGRAPHIC]

In this post, we share an infographic titled “Art Therapy: A Non-Verbal Treatment Method to Enhance the Healing Process”.

This infographic defines art therapy as “a group therapeutic method that addresses the needs of the whole person by helping one express thought and feelings that one may not be able to say with words”.

We feel this is an accurate definition that correctly describes the art therapy process. This definition also hints to some of the inherent benefits that can be had when art therapy is implemented. Art therapy is known as a complementary therapy because it complements and aids traditional ‘talking therapies’.

This infographic states the goal of art therapy is to help the patient grow and develop in their individual recovery process, by offering patients new ways to understand and cope with their addiction beyond conventional methods.

The infographic outlines methods in which art therapy is implemented.

These methods include:

  • Dancing
  • Painting
  • Sculpting
  • Drawing
  • Acting
  • Music

The infographic concludes by outlining many of the benefits of art therapy.

These benefits include:

  • Artistic self-expression
  • Resolving conflicts
  • Developing interpersonal skills
  • Managing behaviours
  • Reducing stress
  • Achieving insights

Without further ado, here’s the infographic:
