What is Creative Arts Therapy?
Creative Arts Therapy is a form of psychotherapy that utilizes the expressive arts, such as art, dance, drama, and music as a primary mode of expression, exploration and catharsis. When processing difficult emotions and experiences, verbal expression can often be a challenge. The expressive arts are a natural form of expression, one that many people begin to utilize at a very young age. As children, most of us gravitated towards creative outlets such as art making, music and dancing, but due to feelings of insecurity and societal expectations, these modes of expression may have faded. Creative Arts Therapy can be especially helpful to those who may have experienced early trauma, are dealing with developmental delays or those who are living with dementia, to name a few examples. These therapeutic services can address such issues as Anxiety, Depression, Stress, Loss, Trauma, Divorce, Self-Esteem, Interpersonal Skills and Relationships, Personal Development and Creativity.
Which Type of Creative Art Therapy is Right for Me?
At Ditmas Park Creative Arts Therapy, we strive to provide the best therapeutic experience for each individual client. Whether you are interested in expressing yourself through art, dance, drama, or yoga, we have a therapist or a group for you. We are also excited to offer combined modalities, such as art and drama therapeutic groups and workshops, dance and art making collaborations, and yoga, art, and meditation sessions. You are welcome to meet with any of our therapists, to find out if it is the right fit for you.
