Art therapy is a medical and healthcare profession that uses the creative process of art making to  improve and enhance the physical, mental and emotional well-being of individuals of all ages.

Through art therapy, research has shown that people can increase self awareness, cope with trauma, and enhance cognitive abilities.

Art therapists are trained in human development, psychological theories and clinical practices along with understanding the processes of creativity and impact that art making has on the mind and body.

This talk will highlight some of the history and foundation of the profession, clinical case examples, and current research in the field.
