Art therapy: observation in art therapy

Een onderzoek van:

Dr. Ingrid Penzes-Driessen

The main goal of art therapy observation and assessment is to gain insight in a client’s mental health and functioning. Based on assessment, it can be decided whether the client may benefit from art therapy, the focus of treatment and which interventions contribute to the clients’ mental health. This research shows how aspects of clients’ mental health are expressed in clients’ art making processes (i.e. material interaction) and art products in art therapy assessment.
