"Art Therapists elicit an act of creation for therapeutic analysis and application of instruction to move a client toward healing, whereas Art Healing facilitated by Creative Stress Management (CSM) promotes self-expression, self-awareness, growth, and an inevitable sense of control that empowers an individual's own healing process."                                                                                                                                                                     ~Laurianne Macdonald, CSM Instructor
