Course Description

In this course we will explore how professionals in music therapy, art therapy, dance and movement therapy, and poetry/spoken word therapy work in healthcare and community settings to promote healing and well-being. Artist-therapists representing each of these fields, and/or related fields in creative arts in healing, will present their work in synchronous sessions, and guide you in experiential exercises to give you firsthand experience of each modality. You will also read in depth about each of the healing arts modalities in our textbook and research articles, participate in online discussions, and document your experiences with the modalities through journaling and a final paper.
