Creative Arts Therapy plays an Increasing Role in Standard of Care for Patients in Military Settings
Creative arts therapy plays increasing role in standard of care for patients in military settings. The National Endowment for the Arts announces a partnership with the Department of Defense to implement a music therapy program at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
This is a giant step forward for the creative arts therapies in the military. Please show your support by posting this info on your own blogs, Facebook pages, and Twitter accounts. Thank you!
Dance therapy is alive and well in 2012 and stands strong in this tumultuous time in our history. This year’s ADTA conference in Albuquerque, NM was a colorful collage of connection, new ideas, creativity, and deep wisdom. The International Balloon Fiesta was the perfect backdrop for this meeting, as we all felt lifted by one another’s support and enthusiasm. In the two days that I attended workshops I experienced dance through drumming, touch, eco-therapy, clinical assessment, and trauma exploration. Dance as therapy is crucial to the healing of humanity’s wounds; the evidence cannot be ignored. So wherever you are, dance strong, dance loud, and dance often. You owe it to yourself.
