Established in 1970, Pratt’s Graduate Department of Creative Arts Therapy is one of the oldest graduate creative arts therapy training programs in the country. Students learn to apply art and dance/movement therapy skills in treatment with a range of populations and settings including: trauma, psychiatry, special needs children and adults, addiction and recovery, geriatric, medical rehabilitation, Child Life, the homeless, abuse, eating disorders special education, and prevention/wellness.
