Lucia Capacchione, Ph.D., A.T.R., R.E.A.T.

Lucia Capacchione is a Registered Art Therapist, workshop leader and best-selling author of 13 books. Her innovative methods spark and nurture creativity in all areas of life.

She originated:

  • The Creative Journal Method, blending writing with drawing
  • Healing through writing and drawing with the non-dominant hand
  • The Visioning® process of life design through collage and journaling
  • Inner Child/Inner Family healing through the expressive arts

Dr. Capacchione was originally a professional artist and Montessori-trained child development specialist. She was one of the first Head Start directors in the U.S.

After successful careers in both art and education, she stumbled onto the healing power of art and of journaling with her non-dominant hand while struggling with a mysterious life-threatening illness. Her full recovery without medication led to a new career as an art therapist.

Methods which Dr. Capacchione developed in her private practice are being used worldwide for treating addictions, trauma, and childhood abuse. Many of her books are used as texts in courses on therapy, psychology, writing, art, career development and applied creativity.

Dr. Capacchione's work is being used in mental health and recovery programs, medical centers, school systems (kindergarten through college), prisons, health and healing programs, spiritual retreat centers, business, and industry. She has consulted for corporations, community groups and schools throughout the U.S., Canada, Italy, the UK, Australia and Mexico.
