A total of 33 therapists were surveyed. A researcher-constructed survey measuring 13 aspects of mental health created by the researcher, was distributed to the participants. Results indicated that participants perceived art therapy to be moderately effective in reducing male and female mental health issues surrounding childhood sexual abuse. No significant differences were found when comparing the effectiveness of art therapy on males versus females.
