The Estimated Impact of Performing Arts on Adolescent Mood within a Community Sample of Mental Health Professionals
King, Alan; Grieves, Julie; Opp, Dean
Journal of Creativity in Mental Health, v2 n4 p65-73 2006-2007
In a brief survey, the authors solicited professional opinions regarding the probable impact of performing arts on adolescent mood stability using a hypothetical scenario where 20 moderately depressed 15-year-olds agreed to participate in a high school play, musical, or other singing performance. The results of the survey indicated that clinicians generally believed performing arts could be helpful for depressed adolescents. The authors discuss the potentials for implementing school and community based performing arts as an adjunctive approach to help adolescent clients cope with emotional problems.
