Art Therapy Can Provide Healing Beyond Words
Play • 35 min

Words are powerful tools to express emotion and experience—but they have their limits. This is a problem for therapists who engage with their clients primarily by talking, however, using art in a therapeutic context enables a different kind of exploration and communication. In this episode, two practitioners and professors of art therapy, Amy Morrison and Beth Donahue, discuss the history of this therapeutic modality, its potential to reach people excluded by more conventional therapies, and also how the new online therapist training program they just launched has made this profession more accessible than ever.
