Creative arts empower adults with developmental disabilities
Here's something new:
Stephen Snow helps practitioners gain new tools for helping adults with developmental disabilities using creative arts therapies within his unique ethnodramatherapy model. It's new video offered by Psychotherapy.net, titled Empowering Adults with Developmental Disabilities: A Creative Arts Therapies Approach.
The video has gotten rave reviews from a variety of professionals, including theater professionals, drama therapists and psychodramatists, including psychodramatist and author Adam Blatner. He says:
"The expressive arts therapies can be of enormous benefit to people with developmental disabilities. In this excellent video, therapists build on group members’ strengths to put on a show, feel accepted, experience teamwork, and participate in the wider realms of poetry, music, dance-movement, and drama. Dr. Snow’s program at Concordia University is an incredible source of ideas and inspiration!"
