50-2409 Introduction to Creative Arts Therapies


The purpose of this course is to understand the healing process of the arts. Expressive therapeutic modalities can expand the client’s level of understanding and healing by offering both nonverbal and verbal understanding of concerns. Creative approaches to problem solving and well-being are also enhanced by these modalities. We are all artists in our everyday lives. For example, we create friendships, schedules, job opportunities, personal identities, and sometimes art, music, dance, theater, poetry, among others. Expressive arts therapists tap into this universal ability to create in order to help heal, teach, and inspire. They specialize in art therapy, dance/movement therapy, music therapy, poetry therapy, and psychodrama. In this class, students will explore each of the Creative Arts Therapies, as well as their own personal creativity.
