Aims and Scope

Creative Arts in Education and Therapy (CAET) – East, West and Global Perspectives is an international journal for artists, educators and therapists, who use and integrate creative arts in their work. The focus is on reporting and discussing perspectives, theory-based application and practical results between the West and the East – particularly China and its neighboring cultures.  The journal supports cross-disciplinary dialogue, cooperation and research between creative arts (creative writing, dance/movement, drama, film, music, and the visual arts) and education, therapy, psychology, medicine, and other related fields. The journal also welcomes contributions that advance this artistic purpose in all parts of the world.

CAET invites research articles, case reports, program descriptions, position papers, interviews, and conference reports relevant to the field. We also welcome books for review consideration. Manuscripts are subject to a peer review process before being accepted and published. Contributions are to be in English and will be published with bilingual abstracts: English and Chinese. CAET publishes 2 issues per year in both print and online versions.
