Art therapy for children
“The art therapy offers a new way of expression that draws the limitation of the verbal blockade, pathological, pharmacological or auto defensive. It allows to capture through the plastic image the sensorial reminiscent images, favoring the memory and the construction of a coherent story that makes possible the understanding of what happened. Comprehension that opens the way to the integration of experience as a personal story that has had the beginning, development and final and which rescues from invisibility the traumatic event, Opening the doors a therapeutic process and automatic knowledge for the person.
Children are not limited to remembering the lived experiences, but re-elaborate, creatively, combining them with each other and building with them new realities according to their own needs.”
