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 provides another avenue for expression, and you don’t have to have any artistic ability to benefit from this.
Today we continue our conversation with C.J. Peed of Heart Therapy Solutions about this form of therapy. People often discount the mental side of recovering from a physical injury and this is one way to address those needs. Find out how to locate an art therapist and begin that process.
