Trauma Treatment & Counseling
Experiential and Expressive Arts Therapy
Experiential and expressive arts therapy (EEAT) is a holistic approach to therapy that uses the creative arts to promote healing and personal growth. It is a multimodal therapy that combines elements of different art forms, such as music, dance, drama, poetry, and visual arts.
EEAT is based on the belief that the creative arts can help people to access their inner resources and to express their emotions in a safe and supportive environment. The therapist facilitates the process by providing guidance and support, and by helping the client to interpret their creative work.
