Art Therapy includes a range of therapeutic uses of visual art materials. At one end of the spectrum art as a means of nonverbal communication is stressed. In conjunction with verbal associations and interpretations, art products serve to assist the understanding and resolution of emotional problems. At the other end of the spectrum, therapy is derived from the artistic process itself. Its usefulness depends on the age-old power of the arts to reconcile conflicting forces within the individual and between the individual and society. (9 pp.)
