Expressive Arts Therapy promotes emotional grown and healing by implementing aspects of psychotherapy while incorporating the creative process. This form of therapy is particularly useful for individuals that have a difficult time articulating what they are feeling, or that do not yet have the vocabulary to verbalize their thoughts. Some examples of this modality may be writing, music, visual arts, dancing and more!

This treatment modality also can improve a young person's self-knowledge, self-actualization and self-efficiency.
