What is the theory behind the worksheet?

Art therapy offers you the opportunity to find different manners in which to express your feelings. Often used on its own or in tandem with traditional talk therapy, art therapy offers an individual a way to use symbolism, color, texture, image, etc. to express their feelings and thoughts.

The process of art-making is part of the therapeutic process as well. This process allows for self-reflection and free expression to be experienced in a safe space.
