Art and play therapy for children and siblings

The Art of Healing: A Sibling Loss Art therapy Series

A six-week therapeutic art series that provides children with a creative outlet for the expression of a child’s grief and loss journey. This group helps children develop evidence-based Cognitive-Behavioural coping skills while honouring an Attachment Framework. These skills will enhance a child’s understanding of the interconnection between our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing.

The art therapist will welcome each child into an inclusive group environment and promote the building of a diverse community.

Each session will incorporate mindfulness, a guided creative or artistic activity, followed by a reflection and open discussion. Throughout the six weeks, your child will have the opportunity to practice a variety of coping skills to gain confidence that aligns with their individual uniqueness.

Who is this group for?
Children between the ages of 6-10 years old whose family has experienced the loss of a pregnancy or infant. Absolutely no “artist” skill is required, only an openness to try.
