Using Drawings within Therapy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Therapists, particularly art therapists, have long emphasized the unique role of nonverbal techniques within the clinical setting. Nonverbal therapeutic techniques involve invoking kinesthetic and visual cues to memories and mental images, thereby gaining access to suppressed emotions. Such techniques also provide the benefits of creativity and spontaneity, which serve to ameliorate and counteract feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness in the patient. (from the article)
