Art therapy is two pronged. The creative art-making process itself is used as therapy to achieve positive outcomes, for example improved motor skills, enhanced cognitive ability, resolving behavioural issues and such. It can also be used a psychoanalytical tool, wherein our art therapists analyze the child’s artistic expression. In the latter case, our therapists interpret the child’s art and also get the children to interpret their own art. These are combined to draw up a psychographic profile.
Expression through art is a way to help the child feel a sense of normalcy without judgment, while allowing them to show their individual personality and bring attention to their strengths.
With the support of our art therapist, the child is provided a creative tool to confront and work through their emotional and physical pain, increase self-awareness, regain a sense of self, and help express unspoken and often unconscious fears regulating unwanted behaviours
