About this Event
In this talk, we will learn how art is incorporated into therapy, and how Art Therapy is a therapeutic approach that can help individuals – especially children – to heal, develop, and express themselves. Participants will try their hand in an art therapy exercise, and briefly learn methods for art analysis in guiding the healing process. Finally, hear some case studies of children who have learnt to express themselves through art!
