CAREERS IN ARTS THERAPY: Utilize your arts talents in a career of helping others!
Careers in Music Therapy, Art Therapy, Dance Therapy, and Drama Therapy have been utilized for several decades, but are not as well known as educational opportunities in the arts [teaching], or being a "producing artist", by engaging in public performances,selling art works, etc.
Many hospitals, rehab centers, mental health centers, [and a few independent theatres specializing in this area] are operational in the United States. The work done with patients,client, or interested individuals yields opportunities for them to connect with THEMSELVES AND OTHERS [feeling the beat to music, but sharing this music with others also, designing an artwork or decorating a self-portrait, writing a short personal monologue & performing it ,etc.] which is extremely valuable for self-growth/self acceptance. This can be challenging work, in working with the the needs of special populations, or ANYONE needing to express feelings or connect with others, as they move through difficult situations. However,it is extremely rewarding to work with these people and see the results. Also, as an artist,musician, dancer, actor, etc. , it is a REGULAR PAYING JOB w/ benefits, which is valued by many.
How can a visual artist, musician, dancer, or dramatist find a career that UTILIZES their love of the arts, yet helps people to make progress through emotional/physical trauma, or "connect" in spite of mental or physical challenges?
