Infinitely Curious: Art Therapy | 25 Feb. 2024

Sometimes articulating a feeling or explaining a dynamic is difficult to do verbally. Here is where art therapy comes into play. It uses creativity and artistic expression to improve a person’s mental, emotional, and physical well-being. It is a unique non-verbal therapeutic modality to heal the past and envision a new life of joy and hope. 

Art therapy is a form of expressive and recreational therapy that can help people reduce stress, develop healthy coping skills, and improve self-esteem and self-awareness. It can also be used to treat a wide range of medical conditions, including psychological disorders. 

Listen to this episode of Voice of Greece’s English-language show ‘Infinitely Curious‘ with Katerina Batzaki and discover why art therapy can be a rich healing process. 

 Listen to the interview with art therapist Donna Lattendresse from NY, who explains how artistic creations often contain symbolic representations of inner thoughts, emotions, and experiences, and how art-making can facilitate self-reflection and insight into unconscious thoughts and feelings. 

Learn from certified and registered arts therapist Laurence Vandenborre how art therapy treated the trauma of one young girl victim of the Singapore tsunami but also Laurence’s loss of her mother. 

Finally, learn how teenager Christina dealt with her depression and how 11-year-old Conor dealt with his autism through art therapy.
