PRESENTATION:  The Expressive Therapies embrace the use of creative expression as a path toward healing, growth, and self-discovery. Art and Music Therapy are integrative health tools used to address the physical, cognitive, social, and emotional goals of a wide variety of populations. This presentation will provide a basic understanding of art and music therapy in the prevention, treatment, and recovery stages of those dealing with substance use disorders. Participants will engage in discussion and experiential learning. No previous art or music experience is necessary.

As a result of this training participants will be able to:

  • Gain introductory knowledge of what art and music therapy are and a basic history of the professions
  • Learn about the benefits of art and music therapy
  • Learn how adults with SUDs can benefit from engaging in the arts
  • Learn through your own experience how to begin to incorporate creative expression and musical tools and interventions into your own clinical practice
