Art is for Everyone: Exploring Art Therapy and Therapeutic Art

November 22, 2021

Art therapy has been shown to benefit people of all ages. Research indicates art therapy can improve communication and concentration and can help reduce feelings of isolation. This type of therapy has also been shown to lead to increases in self-esteem, confidence, and self-awareness. In this week’s episode, we are joined by art therapist, Jocelyn Fitzgerald to discuss the benefits that art therapy – and therapeutic art – can offer caregivers and care recipients alike.

 

Jocelyn is a busy mom who manages three thriving businesses: she’s a published co-author, a licensed EMDR Consultant, and Board-Certified Art Therapist and runs an Etsy shop. (See links below.)
