When dealing with the loss of a parent, divorce, or other life changing situation in the family, children often have difficulties dealing with these changes, and they may become very anxious and unsure, and even develop mild depression from feelings of hopelessness and helplessness.
Art therapy workshops can help them let the pain out in a creative, low pressure, yet healing way. Here is 4 reasons why they work:
• The workshops allow children to release any tension, sadness or anger they may be feeling.
• Help them express themselves without having to put it into words.
• Give them a place to be heard, have their feelings acknowledged and validated as important.
• Help to improve their outlook on the future.
If your child is going through a painful situation, a therapeutic art workshop will be life-changing. Contact us if you would like to know more about how to help your child. We are here to help!
