What is Expressive Arts therapy (EXA)?
EXA is an interdisciplinary approach, integrating the knowledge from psychology, aesthetic, arts and anthropology. It is also an integrated approach of different art modalities, such as visual arts, music, drama, dance and movement, and creative writing.
EXA has been practiced worldwide, such as in clinical settings, educational institutes and non-government organisations. The use of EXA has been increasing and gaining popularity among funded projects and front-line social workers in Hong Kong since 2004. EXA has been evaluated in academic research for its significant improvement in quality of life in clients.
