Creative Arts Therapy - What is it?
Creative arts therapy uses creative modalities, including visual arts-making, drama, and dance/movement within a therapeutic relationship to improve and inform physical, mental and emotional well-being. The reason it is called "arts therapy" rather than "art therapy" is because of the different arts that are used to help people. Creative arts therapy differs from traditional arts-making or performance in that the emphasis is on the process of creating and making meaning, rather than on the end product. The arts themselves are considered to have healing functions that arts therapists seek to harness to assist their clients to achieve change.
