Music, dance, and creative expression have the power to heal
Creative Arts Therapy is a form of non-verbal psychotherapy using the senses to open new channels of communication between participants and their therapists, families, and communities. Creative Arts Therapy uses the arts in order to achieve therapeutic goals.
Our expert therapists connect deeply with clients of all ages, tailoring their approach to each individual’s specific needs and goals for themselves and their families. There is no previous training required to participate.
Goals for Creative Arts Therapy are tailored to each participant, and benefits may include improvement in social skills, psychological factors, cognition, language, and physical skills.
The Kardon Center at Settlement Music School offers music, art, and dance/movement therapy services to individuals with diverse needs at Settlement branches and at other locations in our community. Program oversight is based out of our Kardon-Northeast Branch.
