Creative arts therapies is a collective term used for art therapy, dance movement therapy, dramatherapy and music therapy. They are evidenced-based health professions with a strong research foundation. They work with a focus on psychosocial, cognitive, emotional and physical needs and utilise creative mediums that allow an alternative and additional means of communication. They coordinate planned and creative use of the art forms to accomplish individualised clinical goals within a therapeutic relationship.
