In contrast to therapists who explore issues through talking, expressive therapists encourage individuals to express themselves in artistic manners to further explore their issues in a different perspective.

I think that adding pictures to the different ways of fighting infection would have made it more memorable, and with the pictures, even those that cannot understand what is being said will pay attention and maybe ask for explanation. This topic is of interest to me because I work in a healthcare field and I have a family, I love what I do and I don’t want to expose my family to diseases or infections that could have been prevented if I had taken the necessary precautions to protect myself.

The information on the brochure was presented in a step by step format that made it easy for anyone to follow.
