Expressive arts therapy

Expressive art therapy is the practice of using various disciplines of creative arts to facilitate expression, awareness and understanding of the conscious as well as the unconscious within an individual. Integration of both paradigms using movement, Rhythms, drama, storytelling, visual aesthetics, poetry and imagination enables a holistic sense of self. Such form of therapy can be undertaken both individually and within groups. Unlike traditional art expression, the process of creation is emphasized rather than the outcome.
