Pittsburgh Association for the Arts in Education and Therapy (PAAET)
Where do Creative Arts Therapists work in the Pittsburgh region? Creative Arts Therapy professionals work with individuals and communities across the full spectrum of the lifespan. We provide services in local psychiatric hospitals, community mental health centers, assisted living centers, residential treatment centers, shelters, substance abuse programs, alternative schools and many other types of human service agencies along with private provider psychotherapy practices. Additional opportunities for teaching artists and community artists occur in schools and through community arts events. Finally, medical centers and wellness centers promote use of the arts for mindfulness and healing. We design expressive experiences that draw on our strengths as artists at the same time we engage others in the process of expressing themselves through the arts. Our focus is on the emotional, social, physical and cognitive needs of our clients as well as the health of our communities.
