I am a Licensed Creative Arts Therapist and have my Masters in Art Therapy Counseling. I have been working as an art therapist at an outpatient mental health and addictions treatment program for the past few years. I am also a Credentialed Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counselor in the state of New York.
I started this blog because art therapy directives are not easy to come by and I wanted to make that easier. It seems that most art therapists come up with their own directives but the only people they get to share them with is their clients! Perhaps one day there will be a central database where we can easily look up projects, but for now the blogosphere is where our creativity is stored. That being said, I hope you find these art therapy directives helpful and feel free to use them in your own practice. After all, that’s the point!
