Mind-Body Healing Through the Arts Session 1 - Dance & Movement Therapy at the Nexus of Self and Community

8:00 p.m.

Creative arts therapy is rapidly gaining recognition as an essential part of health care in our society. By tapping into deeply expressive aspects of body, mind, and spirit through such modalities as music, sound, imagery, role, and movement, creative art therapists facilitate self-actualization and healing within the therapeutic relationship. Prominent practitioners discuss principles and practice in this series of lecture/demonstrations.
