Arts-based therapy is a therapeutic approach that utilizes various forms of visual arts, such as painting, drawing, and sculpture, as a means of self-expression and exploration. It provides individuals with a creative outlet to communicate emotions, thoughts, and experiences that may be challenging to express verbally. This form of therapy can be particularly effective in promoting self-discovery, emotional healing, and personal growth, allowing individuals to gain insight into their inner world and foster a deeper understanding of themselves. Arts-based therapy is often used in clinical settings to support individuals dealing with mental health issues, trauma, and stress, offering a unique and non-verbal way to engage with the therapeutic process.
