The creative arts therapies are a cluster of treatments that each take somewhat different approaches to therapy and separate academic degrees to practice. They often compliment each other because they have a creative foundation. Many prestigious hospitals and clinics have creative arts therapy programs. Some of these therapies can be practiced with a Bachelor's degree while others require more advanced degrees. The Creative Arts Therapies are: Art Therapy, Music Therapy, Dance/Movement Therapy, Drama Therapy, and Creative Writing and Poetry Therapy.
