The purpose of this case study is to verify the effects of the art therapy on solving problem between married couple. For the study, a married couple with conflict at their marriage were selected, and conducted a 90 minutes art therapy session per week for 18 weeks. In order to find any effects of the art therapy, analysis of communication at marriage was conducted before and after each session. Based on the above study, the followings are found. First, at the beginning of the art therapy, the subject couple showed rejecting and neglecting attitudes toward each other. However, as sessions go by, they showed better, positive communication as mutual support, care or praises. Second, communication at marriage improved after the art therapy. In other words, communication level between the couple increased after participating in the art therapy program, which means better communication. Third, through K-HTP(Kinetic House Tree Person) test, given that they showed uneasiness, conflict or other negative feelings before the art therapy, it could be found that the subjects resolved conflict, recovered stability and facilitated social interaction after the art therapy.
