“My participation in counseling and art therapy is voluntary and may be ended by me at any time and for any reason”
As with any psychotherapeutic process, long buried feelings may emerge. This can sometimes make the client feel worse before they feel better. This is a valid process, and can be worked on using Art Therapy.
There are risks to participation in counseling and art therapy such as potential for experiencing uncomfortable feelings, emotions or memories; having less effect than expected from therapy, or experiencing discomfort from the process or results of change during therapy.
There are alternatives to participation in counseling and art therapy, such as not obtaining therapy or seeking alternative types of therapy that utilize different approaches. Remember, each therapy has risks as well as benefits, as with everything in life.
“All blame is a waste of time. No matter how much fault you find with another, and regardless of how much you blame him, it will not change you.”
— Wayne Dyer
