Art Therapy Has Many Faces

Judith Aron Rubin, PhD
Video; Streaming Video; Online
Art for healing is as ancient as the drawings on the walls of caves. Famous artists like Vincent Van Gogh, Jackson Pollock and Frida Kahlo used art to cope with their anguish. Now the practice of art as healing is a growing discipline that has been effective in helping those suffering schizophrenia, cancer, depression, trauma, grief, autism, physical or mental disability, AIDS and neurological disorders, among others. Further, art therapy can be used with children, families, the elderly, couples and groups. In this video, you will be introduced to two major branches of art therapy: the use of art as a healing method unto itself, and the use of art as a tool in the psychotherapy process. In either approach, art therapy provides a way for clients to tell without talking, and a new way for therapists to listen.
