Art Therapy Celebration
A great event was held to celebrate the achievements of our Art Therapy programs where we had over 60 attendees from funders, local government, service providers and community. The highlight of the event was having the Melbourne Playback Theatre performing on the impacts of Art Therapy.
Domestic violence impacts children’s lives in every aspect. This affects their play and the ability to enjoy regular childhood activities.
At Emerge, using Art Therapy as the intervention, we assist children to work through the trauma and learn how to play again.
A pre and post evaluation of Trauma indicators in children who attended art therapy saw a 40% reduction.
Our Art Therapy Program is not funded. We hope an ongoing Funder will support this amazing early intervention program which has proven results in reducing trauma in children who have experienced Domestic Violence.
