» Art Therapy for youth
Some who find it hard to talk about feelings can thrive when offered art materials and other expressive therapy methods. These methods, which may include drawing, painting, movement, music, photography, simple sculpture and writing, can help you safely express feelings of fear, vulnerability, or anxiety, thus preparing the way for personal growth and positive change. Unlike typical art classes, these therapies are open-ended in the medium chosen and in the length of the process. Art therapy specifically has been shown to help people gain a sense self-knowledge and freedom.
