The goal of art therapy is to heal through creativity.
Most kids finger paint, draw with crayons and play with clay. These activities support creativity which helps in all aspects of life.
When children and teens become depressed, traumatized or medically stressed art expression is a natural way to communicate difficult feelings.
In fact, all kids need to learn to identify feelings and how to express them in socially acceptable ways. Feelings expressions and management are key parts of the treatment offered by art therapists through the therapeutic use of drawing, painting and sculpture.
Art therapeutic experiences provide a creative and safe space where children and teens identify and express emotions, conflicts, foster self-awareness, explore problem solving, describe their identity, reveal relationship issues and increase self-esteem.
When children and adolescents suffer from depression, abuse, trauma or medical stress art expression is a natural way to communicate difficult feelings.
Through online art therapy my young clients are invited to draw, paint and sculpt a variety of art therapeutic exercises.
After creating their drawings, paintings and sculptures my clients are encouraged to tell stories about the artworks.
These creative interventions help them identify and express their thoughts, feelings, conflicts, strengths and increase self-esteem and coping skills.
I have 30-plus years of art therapy experience with children, teens and adults.
Over the years I've developed and practiced specific art therapeutic experiences that are helpful to my young clients for the treatment of the following concerns:
children of alcoholics and addicts
learning & developmental disabilities
victims of ritual abuse
