Chicago Campus Graduate Discusses the Use of Art Therapy to Express Grief

Chicago Campus graduate, Lauren Wozniak, M.A. ’17, was recently interviewed by ABC7 News on how art therapy can help people express grief and other emotions. 

“Art therapy is so great for when your emotions just don’t have any words,” said Wozniak, a graduate of the Master of Arts in Counseling: Art Therapy program in Chicago. Grief, particularly, can be hard to verbalize. So we use art making as a way to process emotions in a brand-new way.” 

Wozniak is the Program Director for Willow House in Chicago, a nonprofit organization that supports children, families, schools, and communities who are coping with the loss of a loved one.
