Art Therapy Group
with Nicole Ferretti, LMHC
Are you interested in getting to know yourself a little better and want to find a way to do it that is more than just talking? Perhaps an art therapy group would be an interesting way to express your feelings. TCA is offering a 4 session art therapy group this Winter.
Art therapy is a type of therapy that utilizes visual arts to help clients express themselves. It can be hard at times to put into words how you are feeling. Art is a way to express how you are feeling without needing to say a word. It is a visual representation of how clients feel. You do not need to be an artist to participate in art therapy.
This four week group will help clients build awareness of their emotions and being present with them. It is appropriate for those:
Struggling with depression or anxiety
Having difficulties expressing their emotions
Battling self-esteem issues
Session 1, Jan. 25th: A Journey into Emotional Exploration
Using any media illustrate an emotion that you are currently feeling
Session 2, Feb. 1st: Identifying Causes of Anxiety
Draw a tree and have the leave and branches represent a worry or fear you have.
Session 3, Feb. 8th: Exploring Issues of Self Esteem
Use a pencil to sketch a bridge on the paper. To the left of the bridge include imagery of what you are leaving. On the right, where you are headed. Under the bridge, draw obstacles you have encountered along the way.
Session 4, Feb. 15th: A Revisit to Your Emotions
Visualize if your mood was a landscape what would it look like. Using mix media illustrate what your emotional landscape looks like at this current moment.
