Art Therapy for Children

Art therapy for children

Art therapy taps into your child’s natural way of communicating and expressing feelings. Children are able to identify and build on existing strengths while learning new skills to deal with stressors, significant life events, or social difficulties.

 

Reasons to consider art therapy for your child:

 

  • Difficulty adjusting to life events such as divorce, death of a loved one or pet, major illness, or major relocation

  • Witnessing or experiencing a traumatic event or abuse

  • A change in behavior, mood, sleep, appetite, or academic functioning

  • Increase in risk-taking or self-destructive behaviors

  • School stress, test anxiety, bullying or peer pressure

  • Problems maintaining friendships or interacting socially with peers

  • High sensitivities
