Session Structure - 55 Minutes *Please note that the structure may differ depending on your treatment program*
Our session usually starts with a short mindfulness practice-optional. Mindfulness is the state of being aware in the present moment and has a natural grounding quality. We find that this helps with setting the session up for further self-exploration.
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 to use certain art materials depending on your needs or the goal of the session.
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.
