Most people recovering from a catastrophic injury or trauma will turn to therapy to help them through that process, but there’s one specific form of therapy that you might not know about it: art therapy.
Art therapy is a different modality of expression that provides an alternative to the traditional form of therapy that relies on verbal expression. Instead, it utilizes psychological principles along with art materials, processes, and activities to help people with their challenges. This isn’t necessarily used in place of the traditional cognitive behavior therapy, but it pro-vides another avenue for expression, and you don’t have to have any artistic ability to benefit from this.
Today we’re talking with C.J. Peed of Heart Therapy Solutions about this form of therapy. We’ll learn more about how it works, who can utilize it, and how it can benefit you in recovery.
