Expressive Arts as Healing Engagement



Expressive arts not only cultivate the healing powers of imagination, they also mobilize the social engagement system through play, improvisation, musicality, movement, and creativity. When integrated into therapy, they can revitalize and energize clients, helping them to engage more fully in the present while deepening implicit and meaningful sensory-based communications. In this hands-on recording, you’ll experience how to “get past talk” with creative, action-oriented methods that can be immediately applied to your practice.
