Arts Based Therapy For All
What is Arts Based Therapy
Arts Based Therapy is defined as the clinical and evidence-based use of art-forms (music, drama, and visual arts) to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship. It is the practice of using imagery, storytelling, dance, music, drama, poetry, movement, and visual arts together, in an integrated way, to nurture human growth, development, and healing.
Expressive art therapy can also aid a child in achieving better self-awareness, relief from stress or anxiety, learning disorders, autism, and other traumatic experiences.
