This interesting film/animation explores the neurobiology of babyhood. Babies brain development is affected by how parents/carers interact with them and influence how babies learn to deal with emotions.
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.

I like this phrase from Louise Bourgeois which made me think of a project I made as a Fine Art student.
In this project small sculptures packaged as if pills, here a house, were taken as medication.
