When a young child or adolescent begins to display unhealthy behaviours, at school or at home, they don’t have the necessary language to express themselves, so it comes out in other ways, usually negatively, such as anger, violence, sadness, anxiety, withdrawal, etc.

I’ve recently finished a training in Drawing and Talking, which allows young people to express negative emotions, and ultimately to move forward in their life.

Well it’s about time we got a grip on this. Let’s just talk about it, what is the problem?Read more
