Thank you for sharing this post. I will be heading to Thailand in January and would love to donate to the cause if I can. I was recently introduced into the organisation Terre des Hommes. It is an international org that works towards protecting the rights of children and equitable development. There are art therapists currently working with Syrian children and treating them with art, laughing and music therapy to deal with PTSD. They are making incredibly positive impressions on this war-stricken children.

This may have worked in Thailand, and there are aspects to this directive which are well-conceived, but I work in a jail with adolescent boys who would feel very disrespected if anyone were to draw on their work without permission. And I wouldn’t blame them. Something should be said at the start to warn them that there may be adjustments made to their work, and their permission should be sought.

There are many complicated social problems in Thailand, especially for young children. I wish art therapy can resolve their problems in long run. Thank you for caring our children.

They already know that to be true. Affirming them and empowering them to imagine and create something better for themselves is an incredible gift to them and to society. Art Therapy is powerful and you show us in a poignant and touching manner , the way of the heart. Thank You

I really enjoyed reading Sabines’s account of working with young offenders.It is sad that these young people are ignored to such a degree, and Art Therapy certainly enables them to explore the many possibilities by way of Sculpture, Drawing and Painting.Also introducing the Wool Crafts, ie weaving, crocheting, knitting can be a creative experience.The examples of the Seals really was beautiful and probably helped that child to detatch from a divorced parenting, that is so hard for children to cope with in the World. All these mixed Emotions around a child can be really conflicting for some, yes, Art Therapy certainly can help the “young” to find themselves through expressing themselves out on paper, with clay, or other Medias, good, bad, or indifferent.Art Therapy helps people to Create and releases ideas that need to be expressed, cleansing,and purifying for the Soul.It helps people to find their “way”, even through a difficult childhood. We were so fortunate to be nourished, and grateful to Art Therapy for making us aware of just how much work there is “out there” in the World.Been recovering from another bout of Aneamia, and during recooperation decided to make some colourful Teacosies, crocheting circles, stitching them to form a “crown, then lines of knitting, in circles, and a spout. Am calling it “Any old Way Teacosies”, as sometimes,that is the way the tea is poured from the teapot “Any Old Way”. Thought I would share that with you. These young people who feel lost, in more ways than one, can find their “way” in Art Therapy by experimenting, making a few mistakes on the surface of the “Board”, by doodling patterns, dribbling paints, melting wax crayons, and fashioning Wool, to create something out of “any old way”. Just a bit of “fun”, I was fatigued again, but these “teacosies” have regenerated energy.Thankyou for your interesting remarks about Art Therapy with young people. Good Luck with your efforts.
