I’m a senior in high school, and I’m going to college next year to major in special education and minor in art therapy. I’ve been mentoring children with special needs since I was ten years old, and have come to learn that art is very therapeutic for them. I also find art in general to be very relaxing and soothing so I agree with everything you’ve said.

I have devised a simple programme that serves as part of assessment through seven sessions, which explores a child’s perception of himself in relation to his world. From the assessment, I can then explore problem areas that manifest through further drawings, with specifically suggested topics or subjects, depending on the child’s age and preferences.
I have had real success using this method in helping children cognitively, and am willing to work with parents who want to be “hands on” in their child’s healing process via e-mail.

Your best bet is to take a combination of psychology and art courses in an undergraduate program. Be sure to have at least 3 credits each of drawing, painting and clay. Good luck with your goal. Also, you may want to check out the Colloquium at Prescott College. They are open to the pulic and we usually have 1-2 major art therapy workshops each time. Let me know if you want more information. Best wishes, Camille Smith, MA, LPC, ATR-BC

I was searching art therapy and came across your wonderful site.My 6yr old son attended 8 sessions of counselling.There he draws,colours,plays with teh doll house and sandbox…he was transformed from the way he was to a very pleasant and gentle person.But when we went home for vacation things turned back to the old ways.Teh counsellor says he needs more sessions to help him deal with circumstances thht make him uncomfortable.I am now confused.Why did’nt the 8 sessions help him?Its quite impossible to keep going for these sessions throughout…
Kindly share your views on this matter.
Thanks in advance.
Engee

I would be happy to send you the information to disseminate – especially for those who have lttle or no access to art therapists.

I presented this at the Internal Family Systems Annual Conference, 2002, as it is very compatible witht the method. For those familiar with CB – those techniques also interlock. It also utilizes Solution-Oriented Brief Therpay, etc. You can also see the close relationship to an externalized form of EMDR. But,you can be a lay person & use very effectively. Again, it’s very simple, very effective.

If you are really interested, I will send you some information on this.

Dr. Kumaranayake, I’m not sure I understand what you mean…Could you rephrase the question or elaborate a little more?
Ventilating emotions in art therapy is a term that every therapist should know its relating yourself with the art work,being in the composition,accepting the situation and seeing resilience.This feed back is inline with Dr.Kumaranayake’s question asked years ago.

I’m looking for a way to help my child. I broke up with my husband over a year ago, and my 5-year-old son took it very hard. He is extremely emotional, aggressive, disobedient.I’m from a perifiral town in Ukraine and I doubt if we have any professionals in art therapy here. Could you suggest any art therapy activities that can work in my case? Thank you very much!

I am a social worker recently charged with working with kids in my agency’s transitional housing programs. Reading through “How Art Therapy For Children Can Help”, I found this to be very helpful for my project which will definitely be in art therapy. I would like to read more of art therapy activities.

Thanks again

with spcecial need, emotional difficulties and autism, grief, abuse, hiv aids… I live and teach
in south Afica and deal with children everyday with
special needs and emotional problems… Art is the
best form of children expressing themselves… they
love it and feel free and happy and I think it is their way of releasing pent up emotions…so if you
have a child then encourage them to get involved in any form of art good luck to all parents

He started drawing when he was 6 and then I sent him to the local art school when he was 7. But he likes drawing the way he thinks not the way he was taught.It seems that drawing is his expressing way as he difficulties in both socialization and communication. He draws every day.

Currently I am very interested in art therapy and want to learn how art can enhance his language, and to figure out what his thought or thinking from his drawing.
I will be very appreciated for any thought and suggestion via email: sunrise233@gmail.com
Thanks

Manjing
