    Since 25 years, creative arts therapists actively promote the different
modalities of intervention, which consists of; art therapy, music therapy,
drama therapy, dance and movement therapy. These therapies which are
increasingly in demand facilitate the expression of creativity inherent to
each one's inner potential for growth. Despite the challenge to integrate the
diversity of practices, creative arts therapy profession is actually in a full
expansion.
    Some associations starting off in Europe, notably in France and Italy are
turning to our associations model; bilingual and multifaceted. Throughout the
years, this practice has kept on developing. "Creative Art therapies presents
in a unique way the means and possibilities for dialogue for those people who
need to share most difficult and complex experiences, despite having limited
or no other way of expressing themselves", says Dr. Pierre Grégoire.
