Before we can even speak, humans are using images to understand the world around them, suggesting art-based therapy may be a comprehensible modality for both education and counseling.
By incorporating mind, body, and emotions, people are enabled to explore parts of themselves that words may not capture accurately.
Much like how some people crave structured activities, others are naturally more receptive to creative endeavours, indicating the importance for basic art-based therapy skills in a variety of settings.
