Expressive Therapies use creative and expressive arts such as dance, music, visual arts, drama, poetry, and story-telling as therapeutic tools to facilitate growth and healing. These creative modalities and interventions address individualized patient goals and focus on the process and experience of the expressive arts rather than the final product.

Here at Primary Children’s Hospital our Expressive Therapies team is comprised of Art Therapy, Dance/Movement Therapy, and Music Therapy. The Expressive Therapies program at Primary Children’s Hospital is 100% philanthropy funded, and therefore services are provided at no cost to those patients and families receiving care.
