Abstract or Description

In this article by Sarah Shearman, Caroline Frizell discusses dance movement therapy.

'From a young age, we learn to use words as our primary form of communication. For many people words are not enough to express the way they feel, while some cannot use them at all. This is where creative arts therapy comes in – the practise of using visual art, music, drama, dance and movement to communicate thoughts, feelings, trauma and experiences where words fail. Three creative arts therapists discuss their practices and how to pursue a career in the field.'
