Art therapy may focus on the creative art-making process itself, as therapy, or on the analysis of expression gained through an exchange of patient and therapist interaction. The psychoanalytic approach was one of the earliest forms of art psychotherapy. The therapist interprets the client's symbolic self-expression as communicated in the art and elicits interpretations from the client, by clarifying and reflecting on their art together with the client.
