My name is Taylor Twite. The purpose of this blog is to explore the effects of art therapy and to keep track of my own thoughts and research on it.
I would like to find out how art therapy is being used. I would also like to know who an ideal candidate is for this type of rehabilitation, and how effective art therapy really is. I am at this time uncertain of what direction this research will take, but I am very interested in this up-and-coming type of therapy.
I think it is interesting that art therapy is being used to help soldiers and other military-trained people who have gone through traumatic events, because these people are trained to keep calm and not share their emotion, which is exactly what art therapy is all about. I am hoping I will be able to find further information about this and other types of art therapy.
