Explain the benefits of utilizing expressive therapy in your practice.

This course goes beyond words and gives space to all different types of communication with expressive therapy. With Danielle specializing in art therapy and Kimberlee specializing in dance therapy, our conversation is multi-faceted and filled with ways to bring creativity into the therapy room.
Expressive therapy allows kids to be kids and adults to get back to their roots: humans first language is being able to move and create something. This type of therapy approach looks at what clients create and how to adapt that into their story and perspective of the world.
Our expert panelists share why they chose expressive therapy and how much of trauma is not accessible by language, only by expression. Expression is a daily way of life, and these panelists capture this way of life to turn it into meaning.
