Narrative

Art, music, dance, poetry - these art forms are tools for communication at the Whittier Health Center's Arts Therapy, which includes Arts, Drama, and Dance therapists. Guided by a creative arts therapist, a victim of violence draws a picture, sharing her burden and lessening her pain; in music group, a boy with autism taps his strength and succeeds in socializing with other children; in DecisionArts, adolescents role play how to make healthy life choices. The Arts Therapy Department at Whittier conducts unique arts programs in Boston and over 30 cities and towns throughout Eastern Massachusetts that heal, teach and inspire hope for the future.
