This program guides mental health clinicians through the process of effectively utilizing art and drama in patient assessment and treatment. The video explains how to design a playful, nonjudgmental setting for these therapies, suggesting materials such as toys, masks, and costumes along with art supplies, and providing strategies to enhance creativity. Considerations of what to offer based on clinical goals are followed by demonstrations of how to invite patients to safely reflect on their artistic process. 50 minutes. 2012.
