Healing through Art
Age Group:All Ages
This exhibit is a showcase of art from current and past participants in Amy Hahn’s (ATR, LPC) private practice located in Banbury Place.
Art therapy provides a means for a person to convey suffering and to begin to heal, and is increasingly being used to support individuals with mental or physical illness and to de-stigmatize disease and create awareness and empowerment. Current research shows art-making helps to rewire pathways in the brain to help heal from trauma, resolve grief, and develop resilience against life’s hardships. Professionally trained art therapists protect, encourage growth and serve as ambassadors and advocates for social justice and equality in our communities.
