Over the past decade, health psychologists have been looking at how the arts might be used to heal emotional injuries, increase the
understanding of oneself and others, develop a capacity for self-reflection, reduce symptoms, and alter behaviors and thinking patterns.
Given the ubiquity of creative expression, as well as the relative ease of engagement, the extent to which psychological and physiological
effects are sustainably health enhancing is an important area for public health investigation.
From research done in the field of art and healing, there are Four therapies that support our mission: music engagement, visual arts,
movement-based creative expression, and expressive writing. In these forms of expression, arts modalities and creative processes are
used to foster health. Our Programs use these processes and have found the benefit of tying the intricacies of artistic meaning to the
complexities of health and wellness by merging art, health, and cultural diversity together as one of the fundamental driving forces in
artistic creation and engagement.
