Expressive Arts Therapy

On Monday, Nov  9th, PRI students visited Expressive Arts Therapist Sharon Benson in Orangeville.  Sharon Benson is a fully trained and experienced Expressive Arts Therapist and Personal Life Coach and has been a huge supporter of PRI for several years now. (

“Expressive Arts Therapy is a psychotherapeutic model that employs the arts (music, drama, poetry, dance, visual and tactile arts) to promote awareness, change, and recovery through the act of creating. By creating images, sound and/or movement, clients can open pathways from their inner beings to their outer world, allowing real insights and resources to emerge.”

Students had an opportunity to participate in Expressive Arts activities and to learn about career opportunities in this field.
