ART THERAPY, POSTTRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER, AND VETERANS

Art therapy can be beneficial to people of all ages, including adults who have emotional, cognitive, and /or physical disabilities. Our nation’s Veterans often return home with acute psychological or medical conditions that impair functioning, disrupt family relationships, and prevent reentry into the workforce. Others may develop chronic disorders such as posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) that require months or even years of counseling or rehabilitation. For Veterans who are receiving psychiatric care for PTSD and other emotional conditions, art therapy can be an effective form of treatment, either as a adjunct to other therapies or as a form of individual or group psychotherapy.

The Original DIY Animator, I am transitioning from over 22 years in the Operations and Logistics profession, and have jumped into the DEEP end of my original plans, laid down when I joined the Marine Corps and did my duty of Service to the people of the United States.
Seems I am not ready for my service to end, if I ever was, so I live and podcast, hold art and vocal collaborative workshops, create commissioned artwork, do photography, writing, and just about anything I can squeeze into a day!
If there is one thing I would advise, it would be to first, "Stop watching that television! Why watch lives lived, when you can live life, and give?"
