Integrative Arts Therapy

Dean's message

With the opening of the century of culture, expression art therapy is emerging. Art therapies and music therapies are already widely used, and now bibliotherapy, drama therapy and cinama/photo therapy can be used in the field of counseling. Bibliotherapy uses the healing power of reading and literature, drama therapy uses the intense power of dramas, and cinama/photo therapy uses the dynamic feelings of images and videos.
The Department of Integrative Arts Therapy first allows students to live a mature and happy life through their proper self-perceptions, and opens up doors to academic and practical fields in which they can help people who are struggling with social adjustment, including multicultural families and North Korean defectors. We invite those of you who are interested in counseling and treatment through art works and activities for those suffering from wounded minds and hoping for healthy lives.
