ABSTRACT

This study analyzes the trends of expressive arts therapies research focusing on international students. The researchers reviewed studies from 2008 to August 2021, selecting 9 out of a total 94 studies meeting criteria for inclusion. Participants were twenties, mostly university students, and Chinese. Their level of Korean literacy was above average or higher. Three studies had 6 participants, and had between 8 and 10 sessions, with session duration ranging from 45 to 180 minutes. Art therapy was the most common type of intervention, especially drawing; other interventions included fan dance, percussive instruments, sand play, and performance. The most common assessment tool was the Adaptation and Stress Index. The PITR test and 4 types of qualitative data were also used. Majority of studies showed positive results overall. This comprehensive study offers practitioners clear guidance on developing expressive arts therapies programs to successfully support international students, across barriers of language and culture.
