THERAPEUTIC EXPERTISE: Art and Music Therapy
MUSC Arts in Healing was founded in 2018 with the goal to provide access to the inherent healing powers of the arts to improve the health and well-being of the community. From mindful art installations to evidence-based therapy interventions, Arts in Healing’s diverse programming is focused on both clinical and non-clinical needs within healthcare and the community at large. The clinical arm of the department is led by a team of credentialed art and music therapists that provide comprehensive creative arts therapy services to patients and families receiving care in the hospital and to clients served by partnering community organizations, such as students. Arts in Healing is also focused on training and supporting future creative arts therapists, educating people about the impact of creative arts therapy, and policy-making.
