Creative Arts therapy is a specialized form of psychotherapy that incorporates creative expression into the therapeutic process. Like more traditional talk therapy, it involves forming a professional relationship with a therapist to help you with personal problems. Rather than giving you specific advice, a creative arts therapist serves as a skilled listener and observer who helps you clarify issues, discover wishes and explore feelings through both verbal and non-verbal means. With this improved understanding of the patterns and beliefs that inform how you live your life, you can more effectively make changes and resolve the problems that are causing you distress. In addition to being trained in clinical skills, creative arts therapists usually specialize in a specific form of creative expression, such as dance/movement, art, music, drama, or even poetry, video/photography.
