Expressive arts processes have been used successfully in almost all psychotherapeutic contexts, ranging from work with the severely ill to the facilitation of human growth and potential. There is a growing use of the expressive arts in health education, hospice work, hospitals, corporations, and in community art projects especially after catastrophic events.
Introduction to Expressive Arts Therapy is a multi-arts approach in which different art modalities are woven into the therapeutic process as appropriate to a person’s situation. It is not grounded in any particular techniques or media but in the capacity of all the arts to respond to human suffering.
Chapters covered will include the following:
1. Poiesis and post-modernism: the search for a foundation in expressive arts therapy
2. Soul nourishment, or the intermodal language of imagination
3. Artistic inquiry: research in expressive arts therapy
4. Voicework as Therapy: The Artistic Use of Singing and Vocal Sound to Heal Mind and Body
This section requires the completion of a Personal Creative Project.
