The goal of art therapy is to heal through creativity. Most children finger paint, draw with crayons and play with clay. These activities teach creativity, which help children in all aspects of life. When children become depressed, abused, traumatized or medically stressed art expression is a natural way to communicate difficult feelings. The art therapeutic experiences taught in this workshop provide a creative structure where children identify and express emotions, conflicts, foster self-awareness, explore problem solving, describe their identity, reveal relationship issues and increase self-esteem. This workshop is approved for 1 PTSB credit and a certificate of completion will be available for mental health professional who need CEUs.
