A Clinical Note for Professionals: 

Art Therapy is Powerful and Dynamic!

Assessing, analyzing and diagnosing a person's artwork and art process is the domain of credentialed art therapists (ATR or ATR-BC) or other professionals (play therapists/creative arts therapists) who are highly trained and skilled in visual language, art psychotherapy, pathology in art, cultural symbolism and the developmental stages of art making.

If you suspect any artworks or stories show themes of abuse or danger to self or others bring this information to the attention of a supervisor or the proper social service authorities.

Never practice beyond the bounds of your profession.
