Drawing and Talking
Drawing and Talking is a child-centred therapy focusing on prevention, early intervention and recovery of mental health issues. Working with the child or young person’s inner world needs to be carried out safely and non-intrusively, with respect for the child or young person’s own pace and state of being. This is why anyone using Drawing and Talking learns to stay in the world of the child or young person’s drawing. The child or young person sets the pace and decides what to bring to the session.
Helping Children Dealing With Unresolved Events (Feb 2018) - When dealing with trauma, either with a capital or small 't', not everyone can verbalise their emotions, or indeed their thoughts.
Very young children certainly struggle, as they haven't yet gained the capacity for expressing through language. Any trauma, upset, or unresolved events, present or past, could be negatively affecting their behaviour and emotions, at home or in the classroom. Drawing Therapy For Children (Jan 2018) - 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.
