Covid-19 and Art Therapy

Online art therapy during the COVID-19 pandemic has evolved and developed to fit the needs of the communities served.  Art Therapists had to quickly develop creative and art-based virtual spaces for therapeutic work.

A recent Special Issue Editorial by Art Therapist, Gretchen Miller & Alex McDonald highlighted 4 important topics.

  • Art therapy and technology
  • Creating digital safe spaces
  • Creating accessibility and connection
  • Creating resilience

Below is an excellent video highlighting the efforts.
