Bringing Embodied, Creative Arts, and Drama Therapy Virtually to Harris-Stowe State University

I use creative arts therapies, sandtrays, storytelling, sound and movement and play to help connect the brain and the body in order to identify and process destructive patterns, identify strengths and foster spontaneity and resilience. While the current mode of therapy, due to the pandemic, is through a screen, the use of art, sandtray, storytelling, sound and movement, and play are still accessible in creative ways.
