"Though research supports the use of creativity within the helping profession, it remains unclear how willing professionals are to use these modalities. This study aims to measure helping professionals’ perception and willingness to implement creativity within their existing practice. A brief self- report survey was administered and completed by 52 graduate level social work and counseling students. Results showed that a majority of helping professionals view creativity as important within the profession. Nearly half of respondents reported that they did not feel equipped to provide these interventions, but 92% reported be willing to obtain additional certifications in order to do so."
