& ART THERAPY CENTER
We launched a Psychological & Art Therapy center for traumatized children, adolescents and adults in collaboration with Astharte.
WHY ART THERAPY?
Because it has proven to be very successful in helping those in need to heal from the trauma. Art-therapy allows a person to express & heal himself in various forms and opens new perspectives when life has no more purpose.
WHAT IS ART THERAPY?
" Expressive arts therapy combines psychology and the creative process to promote emotional growth and healing. This multi-art, or intermodal, approach to psychotherapy and counseling uses our inborn desire to create—be it music, theater, poetry, dance, or other artistic form—as a therapeutic tool to help initiate change.
Expressive arts therapy is used with children and adults, as individuals or in groups, to nurture deep personal growth and transformation.
Dance/movement therapy, usually referred to simply as dance therapy or DMT, is a type of therapy that uses movement to help individuals achieve emotional, cognitive, physical, and social integration. Beneficial for both physical and mental health, dance therapy can be used for stress reduction, disease prevention, and mood management. In addition, DMT's physical component offers increased muscular strength, coordination, mobility, and decreased muscular tension. Dance/movement therapy can be used with all populations and with individuals, couples, families, or groups. In general, dance therapy promotes self-awareness, self-esteem, and a safe space for the expression of feelings."
