What is Expressive Arts (EXA) Therapy?
Expressive Arts Therapy is an approach to counseling and group work that utilizes visual art, movement, music, writing, drama, and other forms of creative expression as a way to deepen self-exploration and understanding. Together, we will create a safe and supportive environment to try out new creative tools. The arts help give new shape to feelings for which there are often no words.
Who is this introductory workshop for? What can I expect?
This workshop is appropriate for all individuals ages 13 and older. Whether you’re an individual seeking more creativity in your life or a mental health professional wanting to integrate the creative arts into your practice, this workshop is for you. This workshop will be a process-oriented workshop intended to provide a hands-on experience of intermodal expressive arts.
Do I have to be good at art participate?
Absolutely not!! The process of integrating expressive arts into therapy is about process over product. We all have a natural capacity for creative expression. Together, we will unlock and harness that creative power for healing. The best way to understand Expressive Arts Therapy is to experience it firsthand. We hope you will join us!
