Expressive Arts Therapies

The Expressive Arts Therapies are a creative arts-based form of psychotherapy which provides treatment for a variety of mental health issues.  The therapist facilitates the creative process via a collaborative exploration of artistic media to achieve an array of treatment and personal goals.  These goals may include fostering self-expression, enhancing coping skills, improving socialization skills, nurturing cognitive and physical development, and sensory regulation and integration.  The Expressive Arts Therapists work collaboratively within the clinical team to provide person-centred, holistic care to enhance the quality of life of the people we support at Aptus.
