I was sent this link and spent at least 20 minutes looking over these amazing images from Susan Boyes an artists and an art therapist. I have found first hand the power and importance of art therapy in dealing with PTSD.
“Your fears and desires become known when you undergo an artistic healing process. Art Therapy treats your fears well and you can achieve a new lease of emotional life. The Therapy is used to heal emotional conditions, including Bipolar and Posttraumatic Stress Disorders. Art Therapy helps people improve their mental and emotional health, while also increasing their self-awareness and cognitive abilities. It makes a perfect treatment for those who have experienced mental trauma and emotional abuse. It serves as a platform for these sufferers to let out their emotions through creativity. True Art Therapy offers the best form of emotional purgation.” Annette Labedzki Article Source
