Art Therapy Explained and Where to Find it in Kenya
Art therapy encourages children and young people to better understand their thoughts, feelings and behaviours by creating images and objects, children and young people can begin to see the thoughts and feelings they have inside and then be supported by the art therapist to better understand themselves and find solutions.
For some kids, using art to express feelings can feel easier and less threatening then traditional talking therapies especially where using words may be difficult. Objects and images can also be helpful to see the progress made.
