Creative Arts in Education and Therapy — Eastern and Western Perspectives《创造性艺术教育与治疗-东西方视角》

An international academic journal for research and practice 国际英文学术期刊

Creative Arts in Education and Therapy (CAET) – Eastern and Western 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. 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. The journal will be widely distributed to academic and professional libraries, as well as individual professionals in China and the world. As the first academic journal offering a China focus to the international development of the creative arts in education and therapy, we expect CAET to become an important source in furthering global communication and cooperation.

Words from Founder



Dr. Tony Zhou, Founder


The bottlenecks I encountered in scientific research suggested that the insights I sought could not be provided by hard science alone which is more mind oriented. When we engage the arts and embodied experience, we are creating more possibilities for understanding ourselves and the world, and for answering many questions, including scientific ones. So I see the value of the arts not only in performances by arts professionals but also as an essential element of life for every human being as well an indispensable counterpart to science -- just like the Yin and Yang we need to make a good balance. This is my fundamental motivation for establishing the journal.

As an advocate for a deeper appreciation of this common humanity I have always celebrated understanding and respecting different traditions that move like rivers toward and from the source that holds their ongoing changes. My work with the arts also affirms the endless differences in individual expressions, manifestations of our unique creative DNA and biodiversity. I miss this deeper sensibility in our current Western studies of culture where more attention needs to be given to how the arts both individuate in the most radical ways while also uniting in communion with all people and living things.
