Healing Through Creative Arts!

Posted by: Priya Senroy on August 21, 2012 10:04 am

In my journey to find about how creative arts can be used in different cultural contexts, I came an article which has fascinated me and caused a paradigm shift in my perception of looking at Creative Arts Therapy as Western Concept.

This report describes the results of a study by the Aboriginal Healing Foundation (AHF) ,Canadain the use of creative arts in healing programs. Since many cultural activities are

arts-based,  this article addresses some questions that  arose around the use of creative arts in healing programs; in particular,

• How often are creative arts incorporated into healing programs?
• What are the associated benefits and challenges?

The formal research question guiding this study was,

• What happens when art, music, dance, storytelling, and other creative arts become a part of community-based Aboriginal healing programs?

Very interesting read!!!!
