WELCOME TO ART THERAPY RESOURCES
We provide information for practical art therapy techniques as well as essential business resources to help you establish and grow your Art Therapy business. Our business resources will also help general mental health therapists who do not have an Art Therapy specialty.
Art Therapy Resources is a collection of contributors from a variety of backgrounds in mental health (including art therapy and general psychology), as well as business and marketing.
The content provided on Art Therapy Resources can be used exactly as described or as a guide for tasks developed by the Art Therapist. Responsibility for treatment resides with the individual therapist who understands their client’s specific needs.
The information provided on Art Therapy Resources is written based on current scientific literature available with the understanding that future development in knowledge will occur.
The art therapy exercises provided on the site should be undertaken within the context of the human development cycle including young children through to older adults. It is the responsibility of the therapist to determine whether an exercise is age appropriate for their specific client.
The suggested art therapy exercises you will find on the website should be used at the discretion of the art therapist based on the client’s individual needs. Art therapy exercises should not be viewed as a prescription on how to treat a client that presents with a specific range of problems.
Art Therapists should be mindful that working with clients requires an attitude of responding to your client’s needs in the moment rather than based on prescriptive techniques. With this in mind, the suggested exercises on the Art Therapy Resources website are presented as a guideline to use along with your own therapeutic intuition based on your client’s needs.
For new art therapy professionals, these art therapy exercises will help you build a database of knowledge to draw upon when developing your client treatment.
Art Therapy is associated with psychotherapy techniques, however, each therapist approaches therapy with their own foundation of psychological interventions, whether it be psychotherapy, CBT, DBT or other methods. We hope you find the resources on the Art Therapy Resources website helpful in your art therapy career.
