Art Therapy!

Morgan Hooper

nature of the work
Nature of the Work
  • Art therapists are professionals trained in both art and psychology.
  • To start with, an art therapist will assess a patient to determine if art therapy is the appropriate form of treatment for him or her. The therapist may then select a suitable form of art therapy or let the patient pick one of his or her own choice. The art therapist makes the necessary art materials available to the patient.
  • The patient is then encouraged to work on the artwork. The art therapist may provide guidance, but does not tell the patient what to do. Once the artwork is complete, the therapist may discuss it with the patient.
how it can help
How it can help
  • Art therapy is most known to help kids with ADHD. But it can also help kids suffering from anxiety, OCD, Bipolar, Depression, and addictions. Children who have experienced trauma, challenges in living, or seek personal development should take on art therapy
  • Art is known to slow down the mind. If a child suffering mentally from any of these conditions takes on art therapy they can learn how to channel their energy and express themselves in a way that is not self destructive.
  • Art therapists start off with a mean salary of about $29479 to $35500 .
accredited schools
Accredited Schools
  • Because this is not a well known job there is only one accredited school that offers undergraduate studies for art therapy in Ohio. However, you are able to get a double masters degree in both art and therapy at most colleges in Ohio but it would require more course work.
  • The colleges that have Art therapy as its own section include: Capital University, Arcadia University, Marywood University, University of the Arts.

job outlook employment opportunities
Job Outlook/Employment Opportunities
  • Art therapy is used with children, adolescents, adults, older adults, groups, and families to assess and treat:
  • anxiety, depression, and other mental/emotional problems
  • mental illness
  • substance abuse and other addictions
  • family and relationship issues
  • abuse and domestic violence
  • social/emotional difficulties related to disability or illness
  • personal trauma, post traumatic stress disorder and loss
  • physical, cognitive, and neurological problems
  • psychosocial difficulties related to medical illness
  • If you’re considering this career, keep in mind that an art therapist needs certain personal qualities – such as sensitivity, empathy, emotional stability, patience, interpersonal skills, insight into human behavior, and an understanding of artistic media. An art therapist must also be an attentive listener and a keen observer. Flexibility and a sense of humor are also invaluable.
  • Art therapists work in a wide variety of settings -- to name a few:
  • Hospitals and clinics, both medical and psychiatric
  • Out-patient mental health agencies and day treatment facilities
  • Residential treatment centers
  • Domestic violence and homeless shelters
  • Community agencies and non-profit settings
  • Sheltered workshops
  • Schools, colleges, and universities
  • Correctional facilities
  • Elder care facilities
  • Art studios
  • Private practice
  • This job is not a very common job and due to this it is going to be difficult finding a job as an Art Therapist. Most Art Therapists have found jobs in hospitals and have gotten the opportunity to focus on art and others end up starting their own practice.
