Demystifying the misconceptions of art therapy | Psychreg
What do you think of when you hear the words “art therapy”? Do you think of a therapist for artists? A psychologist who holds up inkblot images to analyse patients’ personalities or disorders based off of what they see (better known as The Rorschach Test)? Or perhaps you think of a person who teaches art to children? The above are common fallacies that I have heard firsthand after telling people, “I’m an Art Psychotherapist”.
