Practice Art Therapy!
Its name says it: art therapy is using art as a therapeutic channel. The days of lying on a psychologist’s couch to talk about your problems are over. Of course, the traditional forms of psychotherapy or analysis are still valid for those who want it. Fortunately, there are also more dynamic approaches that adapt to the sensitivity and creativity of people.
Art therapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses plastic arts to improve or restore mental health and general wellbeing. Art becomes the channel to heal. Many patients seek this activity to treat emotional or cognitive conditions. The good thing is that it also brings advantages at a physical level. It decreases stress and boosts the immune system.
Art therapy as way to catharsis
The relationship of human beings with art is ancestral. Regardless of its version, since we existed as a race we have channeled our emotions and affective processes through it. Even in prehistory, although without the connotation of “art”, it already existed as a form of communication.
A person can express pain, childhood traumas, emotional blocks, repressed desires or irrational fears. Through art therapy it is possible to connect with the most recondite feelings of the psyche and release them. Maybe the result is a masterpiece or a piece of mud completely destroyed. There are no limits, only the guidance of a specialist. You work a lot with your hands, with colors, with materials that children and artists usually use.
Who can practice art therapy?
Anyone. It is enough to want to transcend an emotional blockage, release it or simply want to experience wellbeing. This therapeutic approach facilitates insights, bringing to consciousness what is hidden. The specialist works as a companion during the creative process, suggesting certain actions or exercises that favor the patient. The treatment is unique and adapts to the needs of each person, as well as their duration and focus.
