Art Therapy

Art therapy pairs the creative process with psychotherapeutic approaches to support self-expression, self-reflection and healing. It is a dynamic and adaptive modality that can be used with children, youth and adults in individual counselling or group settings to address a spectrum of issues spanning human experience. It can help individuals connect to their senses and their environment, tap into unconscious material that can otherwise be difficult to verbalize, and externalize inner experiences such as emotions, beliefs, thoughts, values and goals. The creative process fosters a strong and resilient sense of self rooted in a view of life as a creative challenge. No previous art experience is required to participate in art therapy.

CMHA-Yukon offers Eco-Art Therapy Workshops once or twice a year. These group sessions are an opportunity to explore personal strengths through nature-based activities, deepen connections to our environment, support holistic wellbeing, and share with others.
