Art and Sand Tray Therapy:
Art expression is a helpful therapeutic tool that includes numerous activities such as painting, coloring, drawing, sand-tray, crafting, clay, modeling, origami and other creative activities. When used in therapy, it enhances the client’s ability to communicate effectively and provides a safe way to channel and express feelings and emotions. Art expression focuses on the process rather than the final product. It helps the client reconcile emotional conflicts, regulate stress, decrease anxiety, improve focus/concentration and increase self-esteem and self regulation.
