The main goal of observations and diagnoses made within art therapy is to gain insights into clients’ psychological processes. These insights act as a guideline to decide whether and why art therapy is called for and which goals can be formulated. This supports the art therapist in carrying out art therapy practices that help to improve clients’ psychological well-being. This research focuses on developing knowledge about the relation between psychological processes and how these processes manifest themselves while clients participate in art therapy. Concepts such as the properties of the materials, how materials are used, how materials are experienced, the visual product, and how these elements relate to one another will play a central role.
