JEDDAH: People are increasingly turning to art as a way to work through trauma.
Art therapist Noorah Kareem, 31, spoke to Arab News not only about the importance of art therapy but on the interesting and unexpected ways it operates on a person’s thought process.
“Sometimes, ordinary therapy can either overwhelm a person or make them feel as though not much has changed. Art therapy, on the other hand, allows them to take the back door, so to speak, by allowing the conscious brain to rest and by tapping into the subconscious,” Kareem explained.
