The transcendent framework of Practical Arts Based Therapy (PABT) is based in Contemporary Neuro-Cognitive Sciences and Indian Psychology. PABT uses mediums like visual arts, music, stories, metaphors and dance for effective therapeutic interventions.

Therapists certified by us will be able to use multi-artistic modalities and gain proficiency in facilitating therapeutic interventions enabling them to achieve therapy goals and alleviate the suffering of their clients. Students trained in Practical Arts Based Therapy will be able to use it with Children with special needs (Autism Spectrum Disorder, Cerebral Palsy, ADHD, Asperger’s, etc.) Children at Risk (Street children, Orphanages, Shelter homes, etc.) Adults with mental health concerns, (addiction, schizophrenia, depression, personality disorders, trauma, etc.)

Since 2013 we have been conducting research projects on the Efficacy of Arts Based Therapy with adults suffering from addiction and mental health concerns. The results overwhelmingly indicate the efficacy of Arts Based Therapy is a treatment modality through qualitative and quantitative methods. The results of our research projects has motivated us to share this amazing therapy model. So for the very first time we are offering a Practical – Arts Based Therapy (PABT) course. In order to benefit the therapeutic community, social workers and caregivers it is being presented in a systematic easy to learn format.
