What are the benefits of art therapy?
Starting an art therapy process helps us understand our inner world and subjectivity through our artistic production.
It facilitates the expression of emotions difficult to verbalize through metaphor.
The use of plastic materials enhances the creative capacity that is reflected in the ability to make decisions, in being more flexible and promotes abstract thinking.
The image and the sensations that the work gives us serve as an experiential memory, leaving a visual and phenomenological mark, making it possible to integrate the awareness of feelings and emotions.
The link that is established between the user, the art therapist and the work, generate a triangular relationship that allows looking at an external and tangible object that allows a greater sense of autonomy and self-esteem.
