Artistic expression can be healing. Expressive Arts Therapy is the intentional use of multiple arts modalities–such as visual art, creative writing, music, movement, and theater–to promote psychological growth and well-being. This Trauma-Informed Expressive Arts Therapy Toolkit can be used to foster healing and growth through the creative process. This toolkit includes simple, trauma-informed activities from Expressive Arts Therapy that can be used for self-care or in provider’s work with individuals or groups. The toolkit is intended for those working in the field of mental and behavioral health as psychotherapists, psychologists, social workers, drug and alcohol recovery counselors, and more. Most of the activities can be done individually or in groups.
