Arts Therapy For Special Needs Children
Oleh: YBhg. Profesor Emeritus Dato’ Dr. Mohamed Ghouse Bin Nasuruddin
Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM)
Arts therapy involves both the visual and performing arts that are used as a non-invasive rehabilitation tool for special needs children. The components of visual arts consist of painting and craft (molding plasticine clay, collage and montage) while In the performing arts the major components are of music, dance/movements and role play (drama therapy).
The arts for special needs children are applied for its therapeutic effects. While it may not be able to correct the disabilities, especially in children with cerebral palsy and autism, it could ameliorate them to create a feel-good felling and improve their quality of life and hopefully tap the internal healing energy to redress certain genetic imbalance. At the same time, it develops cerebral and physical co-ordination.
Bicara Diplomasi Budaya : What Is Cultural Diplomacy
Many governments, people, think that diplomacy is between countries, and managed by diplomats. Few realise that diplomacy is not just about countries negotiating on trade, politics and economics. Cultural diplomacy has been around for a long time; it has been used to introduce cultures and heritage to countries and their people as a way to create relationships. It is also a tool to expose a country’s arts and culture to other countries as a cultural exchange.
