The purpose of this paper is to suggest the direction of a short-term treatment approach in art therapy which can best serve the needs of Vietnam veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). This approach must work within the limitations imposed by the current orientation of an established five month program, as well as the needs and abilities of the patients themselves.
