Art Therapy Worksheets: Free Art Therapy Counseling Group Activity
What is the theory behind this Art Therapy Counseling Group Activity?
Art therapy is a type of psychotherapy that facilitates expression of one’s internal states in the form of visual arts. It is particularly helpful when verbal expressions fall short or are too overwhelming for clients in therapeutic settings. The good thing about art therapy is that it can be used in group settings with people of all ages just as easily as one-to-one sessions.
How will the worksheet help?
The worksheet will provide an art activity that can be used in a group counselling setting to teach about varying perspectives and how each individual views the same situation in a different way to others. This art activity can help individuals realise the importance of respecting and acknowledging varying perspectives.
How to use the worksheet?
Arrange all the material beforehand. Read out the specific directions one by one. Give participants enough time to read the handout and ask any questions. Once completed allow individuals to share their drawings. Initiate discussion about how different the drawings are even though everyone was given the same instructions.
