According to Wikipedia, "Art therapy is a creative method of expression used as a therapeutic technique. It may focus on the creative art-making process itself as therapy or on the analysis of expression gained through an exchange of patient/therapist interaction."
The American Art Therapy Association defines art therapy as: "…the therapeutic use of art making, within a professional relationship, by people who experience illness, trauma or challenges in living, and by people who seek personal development. Through creating art and reflecting on the art products and processes, people can increase awareness of self and others cope with symptoms, stress and traumatic experiences; enhance cognitive abilities; and enjoy the life-affirming pleasures of making art."
