"When Words Are Not Enough" - Art therapy is a type of treatment that utilizes art media, images, the creative process and client responses to the created art productions as reflections of an individual's development, abilities, personality, interests and conflicts. While creating the art piece, the client has the opportunity to process intimate struggles, difficult memories and obscure parts of self, allowing for a journey - getting closer to overcoming inner obstacles which had been holding him/her back.
Just as with adults, Art Therapy with children is a treatment based on strengths and interests as well as concerns. Conducted through art-making and verbal expressions, art is seen as a language and viewed as self-talk, bringing insight to beliefs and behaviors, while empowering children beyond treatment sessions.
