Creative arts therapy, also known as expressive therapy, uses art, music, and dance to help you cope with and process emotional issues. With creative arts therapy, the focus is on using creative outlets to help you express yourself.
Creative arts therapy can help you explore emotional, social, spiritual, and cultural issues that may be influencing your depression. It can allow you to express yourself creatively and help build self-awareness, emotional well-being, healing, and self-esteem.
At Options MD, we encourage you to pursue creative arts endeavors outside of formal therapy sessions. Your therapist can help you learn how to be intentional while engaging in creative arts pursuits in order to get the most out of these activities.
