Therapy Through Creativity
A distinguishing characteristic of The Cabins treatment process has always been our focus on integrating holistic methods into our therapies. Expressive Arts Therapy encourages patients to express themselves through a variety of activities that can help them process what they learn during their group and individual sessions.
When patients are given a creative, unstructured environment for personal expression, they experience a freedom that allows them to unearth and dissect their inner feelings, which is an important part of the healing process. By using images to communicate, patients often better express their feelings than if they were to convey those emotions verbally.
Embedding art and self-expression into therapy has many significant advantages for patients including giving them the ability to share perceptions they can’t typically express with other therapy methods.
