Child Art Therapy

Course Description:

As children grow up, they have problems both in school and at home to express, clarify, and cope with some of the complicated feelings like jealousy, anger, and fear. However articulate a child may be, the complicated feelings are not always easy to talk about, and some feelings are really difficult to put into words. Because art is symbolic, no one actually gets hurt, and the wish has been expressed in a safe and manageable way. If more children had a chance to express their feelings in and through art, there would not be so many who would need specialized help for their emotional problems.

Child Art Therapy helps in problem-solving. Art therapists may offer immediate help to youngsters who have suffered traumas. In spite of all the changes in art therapy and mental health treatment, children are still children, and the psychological issues they cope with-such as anxiety or loss of control-are not much different from what they were 25 years ago. Only the names of disorders have changed. Children who were once called "minimally brain damaged" or "learning disabled" are now said to be suffering from "Attention Deficit Disorder," with or without hyperactivity. Child Art Therapy with a troubled child consists simply of helping the youngster to express his or her repressed hostility toward significant others. Ideal for counsellors and social workers.
