Expressive Arts Therapy Groups
The Green Creature WithinStreaming Video - 2013
Every week for two years during the early 1980s, a group of adolescents met at the Pittsburgh Child Guidance Center to participate in an expressive arts therapy program. To meet their different needs, a wide variety of materials was made available, with the hope that at least one of the creative modalities would enable the young people to overcome what one called "that green creature within." This program uses footage from the sessions to demonstrate the efficacy of using painting, drama, music, dance, sculpture, and photography as part of adolescent psychotherapy. In addition, the video includes detailed case studies of two of the group's members.
