Session structure - 55 minutes

*Please note the structure may differ depending on your treatment program*

  1. Our session usually starts with a short mindfulness practice-optional. (Mindfulness is the state of being aware in the present moment and this has a natural grounding quality.) We find that this helps with setting the session up for further self-exploration.

  2. Art directive- Art directives are offered by the art therapist to help clients explore a particular theme in a creative way that reaches your unconscious level of thinking.  The art therapist may suggest you to use certain art materials depending on your needs or the goal of the session.

  3. Discussion/Reflection -Discussion between client and therapist and artwork, for reflection and insights. The art therapist does not interpret the clients’ artwork; however, they may ask different questions or even ask the client to journal about their experience to help them find the words to describe their artwork.
