Art Therapy (CATA/ACAT)
This is a form of psychotherapy that encourages expression through drawing. It can be used as a diagnostic tool as well as in rehabilitation from trauma and abuse. It is particularly useful for people who may be hesitant to share their experiences verbally. It has been shown to help with cancer patients in focusing their attention on positive experiences, express their emotions, enhancing their self-worth/identity, and empowering them to identify as more than their diagnosis. Registered Art Therapists must complete a bachelors degree as well as a full degree in Art Therapy.
