Alexandra Csanadi's comment, September 5, 2013 3:22 PM
We are trying to use Art as Therapy here in Little Rock for use in helping our Veterans combat PTSD. Art is one method that human's have used since the beginning of time to help people understand and work through their anger, pain, and frustrations. We became too "intelligent" for many years, and quit using these methods, but now the tide has turned once again, and it is becoming one of our better tools to help Vets and children.
