Art therapy is particularly well-suited to young people because it can help them explore and communicate feelings and experiences in a way that goes beyond words and that bypasses conscious defenses. Art therapy has numerous benefits.
It can help teens:
- Enhance self-awareness
- Boost self-esteem
- Gain clarity and new perspectives
- Move through troubling situations and identify new solutions
- Process and share scary feelings or experiences
- Relieve symptoms of anxiety and depression
Our art therapists are passionate about working with young people. They bring deep listening, years of experience connecting with teens and genuine caring to their work. And from this foundation of an authentic connection, they will introduce your teen to a variety of art-making techniques, including drawing, painting, sculpting and collaging, to help express feelings and work through whatever is inside. No particular talent or previous art experience is necessary in order to benefit from art therapy.
