Art Therapy Session
An Art Therapy Session is the specific use of art (fine art such as painting, drawing etc) repeatedly on an individual or group level, over a period of time to address a pre decided behavioural or therapy goal / objective. The use of one particular art form in an art therapy session substitutes the use of the conventional talk-based therapy methods.
Art Based Therapy
Art Based therapy is the use or art based modalities such as Fine Art, Creative Movement, Music, Rhythm, Creative Writing and Drama based activities to work on an individual or group level, over a period of time to address a pre decided behavioural or therapy goal / objective. The use of the specific modality may vary depending on the objective of the sessions, the facilitator’s inclination or expertise and the ever-changing need of the group.
Creative Art Therapy
Creative Art Therapy is the overarching umbrella under which are all the other modality-specific therapies such as Music Therapy, Visual Art Therapy, Play Therapy, Arts Based Therapy, Story-Telling, Art Therapy and so on.
Expressive Arts Therapy
Expressive Arts Therapy is an inter-modal approach to an arts-based therapy module. One session of expressive art therapy may draw upon various art forms such as drama, music, writing, rhythm, painting or movement. This form of therapy combines psychology principles with creative processes to propagate a pre decided therapy goal.
