By On Apr 16, 2018 Coloring for Adults
However, it is important to note that using an adult coloring book is not exactly the same as completing an art therapy session. "Coloring itself cannot be called art therapy because art therapy relies on the relationship between the client and the therapist," says Marygrace Berberian, a certified art therapist and the Clinical Assistant Professor and Program Coordinator for the Graduate Art Therapy Program at NYU. And while art therapy was first practiced in the 1940s, the first research on using coloring as therapy is generally believed to have only begun as recently the mid 90s, according to Art Therapy: Journal of the American Art Therapy Association.
According to the American Art Therapy Association, art therapy is a mental health profession in which the process of making and creating artwork is used to "explore feelings, reconcile emotional conflicts, foster self-awareness, manage behavior and addictions, develop social skills, improve reality orientation, reduce anxiety and increase self-esteem." So basically, its similar to good old therapy. (Dont think you need therapy? Here is why you should take a mental health day now) Yet art therapy is not only about learning and improving yourself — its a means of personal expression, too.
It is no wonder that, coloring for adults app, as well as coloring for adults printables online and offline are so popular these days. Such creative activities are almost like Nirvana for adults’ souls. Even more popular are coloring pages with Mandalas for adults.
