The role of the Expressive Arts in therapy

Journal/Book: Journal of Reading, Writing, and Learning Disabilities International. 1985; 1: 55-60.

Abstract: Discusses the use of the expressive arts in therapy, emphasizing that the product of the artistic endeavor is not as important as the process that led to it. It is suggested that how a response travels through a human body or what kinds of markings are expressed on paper are signposts to the therapist as to how far the individual has advanced physically or psychologically--the 2 kinds of healing possible through the use of expressive arts. The use of music, movement and dance, sculpture, sandplay, drawing and painting, journal writing, poetry, playwriting, puppetry, and drawing in therapy are discussed, and the target populations and specific benefits of each technique are highlighted.
