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.
