Creative Arts Therapies (CATs) are the psychotherapeutic use of movement/dance, music and art to further the emotional, cognitive, physical and social integration of the individual. CATs are behavioral health therapists who integrate evidence from fields like neuroscience, human development and behavior, counseling, psychopathology and multiculturalism to develop their practice of assessment and treatment. Both individual and group therapy is provided. CATS serve as primary counselors for our patients, and treat in conjunction with talk therapists, physical therapists, nurse practitioners and the nutritionist, for example.
