This research project will show how adults use art therapy and creative expression to cope with difficult emotions and stressful situations. Scholars have argued the importance of mediating stress in the human body, citing damage to a person’s mind and body after prolonged exposure to stress. Furthermore, researchers have cited the importance and helpfulness of creative engagements to cope and mediate stress. In addition, this research will show how public policies affect access to resources for art therapists and for patients of art therapists. Research methods included conducting in-depth interviews and autoethnography.
