Abstract

This research paper aims at understanding the author’s experience of self-care as a beginning art therapist through a heuristic exploration. The existing literature on the risks and hazards of being a therapist and a therapist-to-be as well as the therapists’ self-care is first presented. Then, the heuristic methodology is introduced and all its stages are explained. In the process and findings section, the author explains her fifteen weeks process with a variety of self-care activities and strategies. The author’s most important findings and insights about the topic are presented before providing a deepened analysis of her explorations.
