Diving into the world of Psychology/Art Therapy

Gaining understanding about psychology and going to classes to become an Art Therapist is an exciting new venture for me! Already having a degree in art, I’m spending the next 2 years researching and developing my psychology background and knowledge base. I’ll also be taking a few refresher art classes and I want to be at the top of my game when I apply for my masters and have all the tools I need to become a helpful and successful Art Therapist.

I wonder if anyone here has any experience in art therapy? Have you received art therapy or worked in that field? I’d love to gather as much information on the topic as possible while also respecting the comfort level and privacy of those who would like to share any personal stories.
