A Learning Quest: A Case Study of a Client's Art Therapy Experience

  • Author / Creator

  • This research project is borne out of an invaluable art therapy practicum experience, during which I, the student therapist, encountered a client’s acute emotionality during therapy. As a result, I expanded my academic knowledge, clinical understanding, and sense of professional identity through clinical supervision and the literature. I investigated numerous subjects, including those of trauma, neuroscience, art therapy, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, integrative practices, and spirituality. These studies informed my treatment approach, theoretical inclinations, and professional development. This thesis presents a case study of the client’s art therapy experience through the lens of my clinical and academic learning.
