What is Expressive Arts Therapy?

Expressive Arts Therapy is a mindful use of different art modalities and creative processes in an integrated way to foster personal growth and advocate for social change. In the creative healing process, our body, mind and spirit are connected. 


We encourage an evolving multimodal/intermodal approach within psychology, social work practice, counseling, organizational development, community arts and education. We gain access to our inner resources for healing, self-awareness and creativity in the expressive arts process, individually and collectively.
