Creative Therapy Techniques: (Psychodrama, Art, & Sandtray)

Creative techniques help clients express their true feelings and experiences on a deeper level since for many individuals and families, it is surprisingly easier to tell one’s story through actions or visually instead of talk therapy.

We naturally censor our words, yet our body language usually tells the truth. These “out of the box” therapeutic approaches may also encourage clients to identify and address hidden or subconscious issues.

Some researchers have shown that one session of a creative therapy technique, ex. “empty chair” can be equal to  eight talk therapy sessions! These techniques are cathartic, powerful, and even fun!
