Psychology Today "...artistic creativity is primarily a force of health and well-being rather than a mirror of dysfunction, pathology or disorder. Although the field of art therapy is partially based on seeking diagnostic information from the content of art expressions, in contrast my worldview as a practitioner focuses on facilitating individuals’ creative exploration and artistic self-expression to find both the “pleasant life” as well as the “meaningful life.” ©2015 Cathy Malchiodi, PhD
