Special Note from Peg:
Art therapy is a profession that is recognized around the world. In 2014 by invitiation, through a Fulbright Senior Grant
and the University of Akureyri in Iceland, I introduced art therapy to the students, faculty and administration in
the School of Humanities & Social Sciences on campus. It is hoped that one day the University of Akureyri will
house the first graduate art therapy program in Iceland. Art therapy is a treatment based on strengths
and interests as well as concerns. Conducted through art-making and verbal expressions, art is seen as a language and viewed
as self-talk, bringing insight and changes to beliefs and behaviors, while empowering the client beyond the treatment sessions.
