"The arts, health, and well-being and the creative arts therapies share a core belief that the arts are fundamental to human experience and that creativity is essential to health and well-being." (Lord Howarth of Newport) This shared belief is at the heart of each chapter of this book, and Donna Betts and Val Huet, co-editors, have invited some of the international contributors to share their inspirational practice as artists in health and creative arts therapists. The webinar will outline different aspects of creative practice and illustrate how combining different approaches can benefit clients, practitioners, institutions, and communities. We will provide an international overview as although the development of arts in health and arts therapies is still uneven across countries and continents, there is a growing recognition of their beneficial impact across the life cycle.
