Art Therapy is a proven and creative form of psychotherapy that differs from traditional talk therapy practices. The creative process of art making can help employees resolve conflicts, reduce stress, foster alternate perspectives and enhance well-being and connection (Malchiodi, 2003). Since Art Therapists are trained in the arts and, in therapy, we are capable of guiding you through the process of creative expression in a safe and supportive space.
Art THERAPY IN THE WORKPLACE
Utilizing art in the workplace can foster healthy connections, partnerships, and morale while reducing stress. Art-making can be a means of team building, increasing emotional intelligence and awareness, strength identification, and as a tool to build collegial relationships while honoring individuality. Employees do not need to consider themselves to be "artistic" in order to benefit.
