Expressive Arts Therapy provides alternative interventions to address a client’s cognitive, social or behavioral problems, including a wide range of personal, interpersonal, situational and functional problems. AZCFC provides Expressive Arts Therapies (EAT), which are adjunctive therapies using expressive activities or tasks to assist in reaching the client’s treatment goals. We deliver Expressive Arts Therapies in individual, family, and group settings.

The main goal of EAT is to identify and treat behavioral and emotional needs within the cultural context of the client using the appropriate EAT activities and/or tasks. Additionally we seek to provide individualized treatment services in the least restrictive environment which addresses therapeutic goals indicated on the individual service plan. We may provide EAT within the context of other programming such as Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Sexual Abuse Trauma Recovery Program, and Anger Management Programming. A client can be referred specifically for EAT or EAT can be requested as part of other specialty programs we provide. We can provide this service to clients who are 12 years old and older.
