The primary purpose of Del Giacco's Neuro-Art Therapy is to help the client regenerate the sensory system at a decoding/encoding (for our purposes we use the two words interchangeably) levels in the brain while using developmental visual spatial exercises or the Therapeutic Drawing Series (TDS). The specialty of Del Giacco Neuro Art Therapy (DAT) is designed to be supported by neuroscience's emerging views of neuro-plasticity. One could argue that all therapeutic processes are supported by the potential for neuro-plasticity. However, the DAT process is designed to have direct effects on the primary brain regions that deal with emotion and cognition, primary motivators for shifts in behavior, with corresponding neuro-plasticity. In addition, the DAT program is most importantly DEVELOPMENTAL and is adjusted to each client's needs. A bibliography is included.
