Art Therapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses the creation of art to help release metaphors and personal images that can be explored within the therapeutic relationship. Art therapy is a visual way of communicating when words fail to describe what a person is feeling. Play therapy allows children to express themselves in their natural and most comfortable form while allowing the therapist to assess and understand children’s play. In addition, play therapy can also be used to help children cope with their difficult emotions.
