Art therapy can help to reduce depression, says study
A new research suggests that art therapy can help treat patients with severe or moderately severe depression.
The research found that when patients discuss their paintings with the therapist, it improves their thoughts about their values and actions.
The first exercise in the art therapy was to create a picture of how one feels on that day.
After ten treatments, the patients suffering from depression were better than the patients in the control group with same medical condition.
Art therapy is a form of therapy that encourages free self-expression through painting, drawing, or modelling.
Depression is a common mental health issue that affects negatively the way one thinks and behaves.
