The relationship between the patient and the therapist is of the utmost importance. Modern Art-Therapy is interested in the artistic process rather than in the result of the artistic creation which will never be assessed or interpreted by the therapist. The end result is the expression of the pursuit of the esthetic ideal of the patient.
by expressing their tastes and their style and through their commitment to the therapy and their relationship with the Art-therapist, the patients will be using their own resources to find the energy and the drive necessary for a better quality of life, all thanks to the pleasure found through artistic creation.
