Current project : Art Therapy group for children affected by domestic violence

I am currently setting up an Art Therapy group in a refuge for children affected by domestic violence. I will facilitate the group with a volunteer Art Therapist.

There was recently an interesting article about this type of group in the last  Inscape:International Journal of Art Therapy. Mills, E.& Kellington, S.(2012). Using group art therapy to address the shame and silencing surrounding children’s experiences of witnessing domestic violence. Inscape: International Journal of Art Therapy 17 (1):3-12.

Online ISSN 1745-4840,Volume17,2012 . http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/17454832.2011.639788

    Oh, thank you for sharing this resource. I’ve always been strongly a proponent for incorporating art therapy as a part of the recovery process. There is much to be said for that. I’m certainly interested in learning more in way of helping children through the art therapy.
