Expressive Arts Therapies as Medicine?

In recent years, complementary and alternative therapies have become increasingly accepted in integrative medicine.

From the bedside to the operating room, from the dialysis suite to the intensive care unit, expressive arts therapists have enhanced the quality of life for medically ill people and their families for over half a century. In rehabilitation facilities, clinics, and hospitals, arts therapists help patients to maintain dignity and hope in the midst of physical and psychological trauma and uncertainty.

Arts therapists also empower their clients to meet difficult challenges by teaching creative coping skills. Their inventive approaches, developed under extraordinary conditions, are a valuable resource for all clinicians in a wide variety of settings.
