Art therapy helping veterans with PTSD

The BBC's Culture Show visited an art therapy session with charity Combat Stress to discover how drawing, sculpting and painting is helping veterans manage the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Art therapy is a recognised branch of psychotherapy that uses art to bring out unconscious flows of images that can then be decoded.

The Culture Show: Invisible Wounds is on BBC Two and BBC HD on Friday 11 November at 19:00 GMT.
