Abstract

The independent study titled “Art Therapy in a Crisis Intervention Center,” involved four hours of weekly volunteer service at the Crisis Intervention in Lombard. Art therapy sessions were conducted where art activities were presented to individuals, with various mental illnesses. The artwork produced during each art therapy session was recorded. These records include descriptions of the art therapy activity, the material used and the goal of the art therapy exercise. Comments and summaries of each day of volunteer service were also recorded. Similarities in artwork among individuals with the same illness were found. These similarities, along with an overall compendium of the independent study are given in a written paper. In addition, slides documenting individual client artwork are provided.
