Digital arts therapy
I offer digital arts interventions to enhance my art therapy sessions. In these sessions, I invite you to create your project with different forms of technology-based media. I can apply the following modalities for anyone interested in exploring the multimedia arts.
My digital art therapy approach
This newer version of art therapy, this includes all forms of technology-based media, which can be used as a form of self-expression. It works particularly well for those “digital natives” for whom computers have always formed part of their life experience and can be picked up anytime and anywhere as a style of self-care.
As of today, almost every aspect of our lives is shaped, mediated, and informed by the conspicuous – and often beneficial –nature of digital technology. An especially important implication of this twenty-first century shift is the use of these newly-available tools and techniques which can promote therapeutic outcomes, and offer new opportunities for communication, self-expression, and authentic connection.
My Ph.D. research journey has been eye-opening, to say the least. The process educated both my ASD clients and myself on a rich range of topics. These experiences did more than deepen my understanding as a therapist and a human being. They offered useful insights for therapists working with individuals on the autism spectrum and those otherwise touched by this condition.
