Art therapy in high demand
Awareness of the Emerge Art Therapy Program is increasing and we’re receiving a growing number of requests for individual and group sessions for children in the local community.
As well as working directly with children, Emerge has been out and about talking to groups about how art therapy works and how it can benefit traumatised children. Recently, for example, we did a presentation to the Domestic Violence Resource Centre as part of their professional development training ‘Family Violence Hurts Too.’
Perhaps the best way to understand how art therapy works is to experience it first-hand. We ran a special two-hour practical art therapy session for staff at the Alannah and Madeline Foundation. Many people find it easier to express themselves visually through art rather than verbally through language.
That’s why we’re looking to enhance the therapeutic value of our current art therapy program so we can assist more children impacted by family violence to transform their experience and heal.
Emerge is currently seeking funding to ensure this important program can continue to run. If you would like to support our Children’s Art Therapy Program by making a donation, please Click here to donate.
