The sphere of interpersonal relations is very important for a person's happiness. High levels of alexithymia interfere with interpersonal relationships. Our study showed a significant negative correlation between alexithymia and happiness. People with high rates of alexithymia should be less happy than others. But experiencing happiness can reduce a person's level of alexithymia. If alexithymia manifests itself as a temporary reaction or a certain state of a person, the experience of happiness can reduce level of alexithymia. Various methods of art therapy are effective in the treatment of alexithymia. Intense experience of happiness can be an additional factor in the effectiveness of art therapy in the treatment of alexithymia. But, it needs further research.
