      mandy here: interesting question – we all work differently, some art therapists draw in groups and share the drawings as a reflection of what might be going on – what feelings there are “in the room”.
      but I don’t usually draw, sometimes i do the squiggle game to help someone feel relaxed, or help with a drawing if they find it hard / disabled so not able to cut out/ stick a picture

      music therapists play instruments alongside their clients so the therapy is an interaction between people
      hope that helps
