L'art-thérapie: utiliser la création artistique pour améliorer le bien-être

Art therapy: using artistic creation to improve well-being

Art therapy is an approach using artistic creation to help individuals overcome emotional, mental or physical difficulties. She combines the techniques of art with the principles of psychotherapy to enable individuals to express themselves creatively, understand their emotions and solve problems.

Art therapy can be used to treat a variety of disorders such as depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, eating disorders, mood disorders, and personality disorders. It is used with people of all ages, including children, adolescents and adults.

Art therapy techniques can include painting, sculpture, dance, music and drama. You don't have to have artistic skills to benefit from art therapy, because the goal is not to create a perfect work of art, but rather to use artistic creation as a way to expression and self-understanding.

Art therapists, who are professionals trained in psychology and art, accompany people in their artistic creation process and help them understand the emotions and thoughts behind their work. Art therapy can be used alone or in combination with other forms of therapy to achieve more comprehensive results.
