Art Healing vs Art Therapy

Art Therapists elicit an act of creation for therapeutic analysis and application of instruction to move a client toward healing , whereas Art Healing (CSM) facilitates creativity to promote self-expression, self-awareness, growth, and an inevitable sense of control that empowers an individual's own healing process

~Laurianne Macdonald, CSM Instructor
