Smile is narrative therapy an arts' therapy

I am new to this forum--am currently earning a second master's (in counseling). A short section on "narrative therapy" was in the textbook of one of my courses; I got curious, then checked out a video. The therapist was doing most of the writing.

Is this typical?

Would those on the forum consider narrative/writing therapy an art therapy, and are there methods for client use?

I have taught writing for many years and was/am a professional writer; my interest in words is lifelong and I am drawn to anything that allows people to "work with their hands."

I have found drawing and writing extremly helpful personally in accessing the "stuck" places. I considered enrolling in an art therapy master's program but had too many undergraduate art classes to make up, too little time.

Good luck to all with your work and studies.
