Art Therapy

In the Naples Sun-Times, licensed massage therapist Silvia Casabianca explains her motives to begin practicing art therapy, while also explaining what the practice involves and its benefits.

Although Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung introduced the process of drawing or art making in their treatments, it is Margaret Naumburg who is considered the pioneer in the field. She was a psychoanalyst who systematically introduced drawing in therapy. She used art mostly as a road to the unconscious, while another pioneer in the field, Edith Kramer, who was an art educator and had extensive experience with kids, focused on the use of art as therapy.
