RP-8000.0500Art Therapy Definition
Programs that offer a form of therapy which encourages individuals to achieve self-expression and emotional release by communicating their emotions and conflicts graphically through painting, drawing, sculpting and other art forms.

It is used both as a diagnostic tool and a treatment technique for people of all ages who have anxiety, depression and other mental and emotional problems and disorders; social and emotional difficulties related to disability and illness; trauma and loss; physical, cognitive and neurological problems; and psychosocial difficulties related to medical illness.
YB-9000Young Adults Definition
Individuals who are generally between the ages of 18 and 25 depending on the ages that specific programs use for qualification.

YS-8500Transgender Individuals Definition
An umbrella term for people whose gender identity is not in harmony with their birth assignment, or who experience their gender identity as radically different from what is expected of a "man" or "woman". It includes but is not limited to people who identify as transgender, trans woman, trans man, transsexual, gender non-conforming, gender variant, gender queer or pangender. Many communities live under this umbrella but there is no single or universal experience of what it means to be trans (a word used interchangeably with "transgender").
