Expressive Arts Therapies
Expressive Arts Therapies, Equine Facilitated Therapy (or Equine Facilitated Wellness)
Expressive Arts Therapies use digital media or traditional arts and crafts materials to help clients express themselves more effectively. Therapists use art therapies in conjunction with traditional psychotherapy in clinical settings for clients of all ages to promote mental health.
Writing, movement, drama, music and other forms of art is used as part of several integrative mental health interventions and complementary practices. The logic behind expressive art therapy is that people often find it easier to express themselves in symbols, pictures and movement. By allowing this artistic expression, clients can express their thoughts and emotions easily, while finding the path to transformation, recovery and wellness.

Equine-assisted therapy involves interactions between individuals and horses, guided by trained therapists, to promote emotional growth and learning. Through activities like grooming, riding, and groundwork, participants can develop communication skills, build trust, and gain insights into their own behavior and emotions. This therapy capitalizes on the unique bond between humans and horses to support therapeutic outcomes.
