Therapeutic services


The main program at the Centre for the Arts in Human Development provides group therapy in four creative arts therapies modalities – art therapy, drama therapy, music therapy, and dance/movement therapy – to participant cohorts who attend the program for a three-year period. In addition, individual therapy is provided to selected participants within the cohort and individuals referred from external resources.

The Centre has an ongoing partnership agreement with the West Montreal Readaptation Centre for the provision of therapeutic services. Significant and observable improvements in self-esteem, confidence and social skills have been documented.
