Art Therapies Including Music Therapies

  • 1247 Accesses

Part of the Pediatric Oncology book series (PEDIATRICO)

Abstract

The concept “arts therapies” includes the individual therapies of drama, art, music, dance, and poetry. “Expressive arts therapy”/“creative arts therapy” is an intermodal discipline whereby the therapist and client move freely between drawing, music making, writing, art creation, movement, and talking. Each form of therapy has unique properties and inherent differences. While expressive therapies, as a rule, include both nonverbal and verbal elements, focus on artistic activities gives clients opportunities to express themselves without words (Malchiodi 2005). This can be especially important for children having trouble using words to describe feelings, which is common for those under eight or nine, particularly if traumatized (Carey 2006).
