HKEXAT was found by Registered Arts Therapists, Expressive Arts Therapists, and Master of Expressive Arts Therapy of the University of Hong Kong. Expressive arts therapy (EXAT) is a multi-modal intervention approach integrating various arts, like visual art, music, drama, dance/ movement, creative writing, that fosters therapeutic outcomes of body-mind- spirit in a supportive environment.
