The Role of Creativity in Treatment

PeaceLove is an expressive arts studio, which means they do art that is focused on mental health and mental
wellness. The intention is to use art as a way to feel better. The workshop will also discuss how building a foundation of creativity may create opportunities for change. The non-clinical expressive art approach to explore the relationship between different emotions that people experience is the focus. The project explores the contrast between how we present ourselves to the outside world when we actually feel something else inside, or the dynamic that occurs when we feel multiple emotions at one time. Participants begin to bring these two aspects of self together in unity.
