Transcript of Expressive Arts Therapy

Dance/movement therapy uses movement to "further the emotional, cognitive, physical and social integration of the individual." Through movement, DMT can help individuals with a wide range of psychological disorders achieve greater self-expression.
cognitive function
= language production
social integration
= pragmatic language
self-expression
= communication
http://www.arttherapy.org/
Clients use art media, the creative process, and the resulting artwork to explore feelings, reconcile emotional conflicts, foster self-awareness, manage behavior and addictions, develop social skills, improve reality orientation, reduce anxiety, and increase self-esteem
explore feelings, reconcile emotional conflicts
= self-communication
manage behavior, develop social skills =
pragmatic language, verbal and non-verbal communication

"Art is a natural and age-appropriate means of communication for a child."
"For children with moderate to severe speech
and language disabilities, art therapy can be the key to unlocking and communicating thoughts that might otherwise go unspoken."

“What makes art therapy so effective is that it addresses trauma that can often not be treated through left-brain, language-based therapeutic practices. Art therapy stimulates the right brain, connecting to symbols, images, and perceptions that speak to us from the unconscious, and which can release emotions and offer greater emotional regulation,” said Berberian. “These images serve to instruct students and their family members and educators about the ways art can activate resiliency.”
