“Infinitely Curious”: why art therapy can be a rich healing process

Katerina Batzaki

Sometimes articulating a feeling or explaining a dynamic is difficult to do verbally. Here is where art therapy comes into play. It uses creativity and artistic expression to improve a person’s mental, emotional, and physical well-being. It is a unique non-verbal therapeutic modality to heal the past and envision a new life of joy and hope.

Art therapy is a form of expressive and recreational therapy that can help people reduce stress, develop healthy coping skills, and improve self-esteem and self-awareness. It can also be used to treat a wide range of medical conditions, including psychological disorders.
