About the course

Child Art Psychotherapy is a therapy for children with mental health difficulties, where the child is supported to focus on areas causing distress in his/her life through the medium of art. The child is provided with the space and time to create images, and the child is supported to discuss his/her images with the therapist. It is considered a method to access and process trauma and possibly to access the unconscious. The image is used as a means of communication between the child and therapist, which some children find less stressful than attending verbal therapies.
