Therapeutic photography is a method in which photography is embraced as a tool for mindfulness, meditation, gaining insight, self-discovery, transformation and/or healing. The process of making photographs serves as therapy, with or without a mental health therapist involved. Therapeutic photography programs involve creating photographs and talking about them.
Therapeutic photography helps individuals explore photography as a vehicle for seeing and connecting with the world around them, and with themselves.
