The Art Therapy program of Capital University combines an artist’s understanding of creative expression with a therapist’s understanding of personal dynamics.


By using the creative process, the Art Therapy program of Capital University can help to develop and enhance the mental, emotional and physical well-being of people of all ages. 

Certain characteristics of a person's artistic expression, such as form and content, as well as the associations and reactions to the artwork, can be used by art therapist to explore interpersonal conflicts, develop interpersonal skills, manage symptoms and behaviors, gain self-awareness and develop self-esteem. 

The art therapist brings to the therapeutic setting a unique view of the creative process as a healing process.
