Separation or Divorce
Separation or divorce
Separation or divorce represents a big change for a family. While change can bring opportunities, initially it may be incredibly difficult. For some it can be a confusing and uncertain time. Art therapy can provide a safe space where individuals can express themselves, begin to make sense of their experiences, and discover a sense of confidence to manage their feelings about the separation.
Art therapy can:
Offer a safe neutral space where the client sets the agenda
Build self esteem, which increases a client’s confidence in their ability to face challenges and manage in difficult situations
Provide opportunities for self expression through art and play that may allow clients to express feelings that are difficult to put into words
Practice strategies for managing difficult emotions with the intention that these strategies can be used during times of stress
