Expressive arts therapy is a multimodal approach to therapy that integrates creative writing, poetry, drama, painting, drawing, collage, clay, music, dance, movement, sandtray and other play therapies. A trained expressive arts therapist can help you to explore your thoughts, feelings, memories, associations, and insights through metaphors, imagery, sounds, movements, storytelling, role-playing and other experiential techniques. Unlike traditional art making, the simple process of creating is more important than the final product.
