What is ART THERAPY?

 “Art therapy is a non-threatening, non-traditional way to get help with issues causing stress. Art therapy uses the creative process of art making to improve and enhance the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of individuals of all ages. It is based on the belief that the creative process involved in artistic self-expression helps people to resolve conflicts and problems, develop interpersonal skills, manage behavior, reduce stress, increase self-esteem and self-awareness, and achieve insight.” American Art Therapy Association, www.arttherapy.org

Alyssa L. Millard, MAAT, B.A., B.S., most recently
graduated from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago,IL, in 2006, with a masters in Art Therapy. Previously, she has graduated from The College of Charleston, Charleston,SC, with a B.A. in Studio Art (1998) and a B.S. in Psychology (2003). As an art therapist, Millard has worked mainly with adolescent and elderly populations, but is currently working with young children. Millard is also an active artist, working as a printmaker, painter and jewelry enthusiast. However, she is familiar with a variety of art media, including, but not limited to: sculpture, sewing, photography, knitting, and more!

 I believe that the visual language of art has the ability to dialogue with the viewer in a much more profound way than through the written or spoken word alone. A visual image can sometimes speak volumes much more clearly than the spoken word, directly accessing one’s psyche and instinctual understanding of something.

“I can dream it. I can see it in my eye, but I just can’t find the words!”-unknown author Art can provide that avenue of expression for emotions or ideas that are too ‘big’ for words. Millard is currently working as an art therapist seeking registration in the Charleston,SC area.
