ABSTRACT

To understand what creativity is and why creativity is needed in Dance/Movement Therapy, this literature-review based study explores how creativity is related to human life, with a focus on the cultural influences of Confucianism, as well as on education in Korea. In Korea, creativity has been underestimated due to a lack of understanding of the full nature of its quality, and has been seen as the exclusive purview of artists. A review of the literature has uncovered many benefits of the creative arts process in both psychotherapy and clinical supervision. As the creative arts process can offer a solution for personal or societal difficulties, cultural sensitivity, openness, and self-reflection around creativity are crucial qualities for educators, therapists, and supervisors. These qualities are therefore essential for providing excellent educational or clinical services, and professionals in these fields should continuously seek to dance with this space of creativity
