Art therapy provides a means by which to express oneself in addition to verbal expression. The artworks created in therapy allow for new information to surface through free expression and metaphor and can guide the therapy process. Artmaking is an equally powerful tool in processing trauma as it engages the body and offers a physical release and empowerment over one’s narrative.
