We will tell you how paints and canvas can replace qualified psychologists.
Nowadays we begin to perceive people with mental disorders - they are no longer considered to be simulators and they are treated seriously. However, if you really have problems or you are fed up with depression or constant stress, do not rush to buy magic pills. It is better to visit the therapist and try art therapy. We will tell you how it works.
The fact that art has an impact on a person is known from ancient times. It is no wonder that painting and music eventually became as medicines against mental problems. Art therapy is widespread and is used not only by psychotherapists, but also by psychologists.
There is no scientific evidence that art therapy is effective, since it is based on an individual approach. However, people who have already picked up pencils or paintbrushes, say: It works. During the creation of the picture, a person immerses himself in art and imagination. It is a good way of letting out your feelings and getting relaxed.
The art therapy includes many areas: sculpture, creation of various clay crafts, sewing, embroidery ... But the most popular is still isotherapy. It can be coloring or simple painting. You can express yourself in different ways - drawing abstractions or portraits, use paintbrushes, pencils or fingers. This kind of art therapy has no contraindications.
You don’t need special training or talent for trying art therapy. The main thing is the ability to express your emotions, feelings, sensations to the fullest extent. The main thing psychologists pay attention to is patient’s choice of colors. if they are excessively gloomy, the problems are much more serious than it seems.
It is difficult to say how art therapy can help a single person. In any case, some anti-stress colorings will not be superfluous. It is always a good idea to get distracted from hustle of life and everyday problems, feel like a child and relax.
