Abstract

The study conducted discusses the use of art therapy at a University counseling center as an additional approach to treating clients. Like all young adults, adolescents need to cope with psychological and psychosocial a change that is connected to the development of an independent life. Coupled with the stressors of University, individuation, academic pressures, and personal and professional goal attainment, emotional regulation can become difficult. The research presented explains the prevalent mental health issues that are being diagnosed on University campus and the definition and benefits to using art therapy as a way of expressing feelings and thoughts. The purpose of the present research was to assess whether or not students and faculty see a need to incorporate art therapy into traditional psychotherapy. This study examines mental health issues in colleges and the effects that they presume on students. The literature reviewed supports the use of different art Medias as a means of exploring an individual’s inner self. The study defines art therapy techniques as a mode of treatment to use in conjunction with psychotherapy. The study also focused on how art therapy could prove to be useful in combating the mental illnesses that are prevalent in higher institutions. From the results it appears that the need and interest for the use of art therapy in a counseling center was supported. The study also found that most all the participants agreed with the treatment benefits of art therapy. An open psycho-educational art group in the college setting could be a useful approach to reducing depression and anxiety and providing students with coping skills.
