About Arts Based Therapy (ABT)

ABT is the evidence-based use of art forms to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship. The basis of ABT lies in Indian Psychology and Ethics, Studies of Human Development, Neuroplasticity and Cognitive neurosciences.

Arts-Based Therapy (ABT) is a contemporary therapy based on traditional and modern artistic material.
The term was coined by WCCL Foundation in 2001 to represent the use of various art forms such as rhythm, drama, visual arts individually and in an integrated format in therapy. For more see here
In ABT there is a concurrence of art forms (drama, music and visual arts). This enables a Practitioner to acquire a generic vocabulary of stories, songs, roles, rhythms, drawings and colours, and use appropriate combinations to address specific client needs.

“The use of one’s hands and imagination can be fulfilling for clients. Art therapy can reduce the need for medication, reduce anxiety and help improve cognitive skills” Cathy Malchiodi, PhD, Founder Director, Trauma-Informed Practices and Expressive Arts Therapy Institute, President of Art Therapy Without Borders.

“The body is the primary means of learning, and all learning is secondary to that first learned through the body. Play and Drama therapy focuses on experiences within and can help with internal physiological and emotional experiences and with regulation coping strategies” Dr. Sue Jennings, 2005, p. 67 Pioneer Drama & Play Therapy, Europe

“Brain research involving music has shown that music has a distinct influence on the brain by stimulating physiologically complex cognitive, affective and sensorimotor processes” Michael Thaut in Rhythm, Music and The Brain

ABT is based on the foundation of Buddhist Psychology and Philosophy and lays emphasis on Eastern Mind Training principals."All experiences are preceded by mind, having mind as their master, created by mind " -Gautama Buddha,Dhammapada
