As part of the human race we are lucky to have a big capacity to change and grow. Each of us is a highly valuable, priceless, non repeatable model, with a unique ability to give something precious to the world that only we can. When we know ourselves and our value, we become agents for change in the world, and the benefit of our presence ripples out throughout the community. Art Therapy can enable us to find our own locus of change in our lives. We can use these creative skills everyday in exploring and interacting with our world. We can find creative solutions to challenges we meet, and walk with confidence and pride in ourselves and our ability to be us.
Art therapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses art as the main form of communication. As Art therapy is not dependent on spoken words it can be helpful for anyone who finds it hard to express their thoughts and feelings verbally. It can be helpful for very young children, children with communication problems, and children who are speaking in a second language. Children and young people referred for art therapy need not have previous art experience or skill.
The art therapist’s role is to facilitate communication of children’s thoughts and feelings through the use of art.
