According to Assistant Professor and Program Coordinator Brandoff, while coloring books are not a substitute for art therapy, they do “have some similar benefits, but the benefits of art therapy extend far beyond that which can be gotten from coloring.”

“Benefits of coloring that we have identified, both anecdotally and through research, include stress relief, distraction, mental escape, focusing or mindful engagement, and for some people enjoyment and fun.”

“While art therapy can foster these same benefits, it is more likely that a person engaging in art therapy has larger goals in mind, such as enhancing communication with self and/or others, processing trauma, facilitating decision-making, increasing self-awareness, developing coping skills, and understanding optimal and maladaptive functioning which might pertain to symptoms that tie to a life experience, relationship, loss or illness,” Brandoff said.

“These types of goals really require the presence, guidance, and support of a trained therapist, whereas stress reduction and mental escapism are comfortably in the domain of something that one can engage in on their own at home.”Brandoff explained.

“To help understand the difference, I use metaphors. Consider the distinction between a) owning a brush and brushing your hair at home, and b) going to a salon and having your hair cut and styled by a professional."

"Both are good, and both serve similar goals, but if you have a need for a professional haircut, brushing your hair at home just won’t achieve that.”

“Another metaphor could be the distinction between a) engaging in stretching at home and b) going to a chiropractor. They may seem similar in approach and goal (e.g. optimal physical functioning), and while stretching at home can have an enormous benefit and be highly recommended, if you have a pinched nerve, just stretching on your own at home may not effectively address that issue. Another example: when I have a headache, I don’t immediately go to a neurologist. I might start with taking Ibuprofen, but there are some headaches that simple over-the-counter medication will not properly treat.”

Why have coloring books become so much more popular in recent years?

“I think that coloring books for adults have become so popular in the last decade because of a combination of marketing and nostalgia.”

“On the marketing end, there are so many different kinds of coloring books out there. Ones that are funny, clever, adorable, and beautiful. These play into our personalities, interests, and things that bring us joy. There are coloring books that play into trending phenomenon like mindfulness, and books that mimic famous works of fine art. There are books that cater to animal lovers, or unicorn lovers, and I even saw your article of the Jason Momoa coloring book.”

She continued, “My colleague has a book with elaborate and ornate profanity words, and a friend had a book dedicated to her fight with cancer. There seem to be books that play to all interests, which make good gifts and gimmicks, and like everything else in our culture, if it’s sold to us well, it’s likely to do well.”

“I think the other issue is nostalgia, which may be real or perceived. Some people loved coloring as children, or have memories of escaping into coloring pages, the clear definition of boundaries, and the freedom to maintain or to break those boundaries at will without consequences from the world or others. Coloring books allow for that freedom,” she said.

“For folks who didn’t love coloring as children, or don’t have fond memories of escaping to coloring books, it might feel like a lost opportunity that they now get to visit. There is a perceived nostalgia in connecting with activities that we think that children do or should enjoy. We get to be childlike or more spontaneous, whimsical, and in the moment when we color, which is contrary to what is often expected in adulting.”

The coloring book is a complete Momoa showdown from start to finish, full of pictures that are sure to get rid of all your worries and stress.
