Art Therapy is usually a very effective way of working with children who may be going through a difficult time. This may be due to specific changes in the child’s life, for example, divorce, bereavement, trauma, bullying, arrival of a new sibling etc. What may be difficult to put into words, or even unknown in spoken language, can be expressed through the artwork of the child.
Art Therapy would be a recommended approach for children who are having more long-term difficulties be they in school or at home. Examples of struggles could range from specific learning difficulties, ADHD, illness, relationship issues, low self-esteem, depression etc.
