“It is so difficult to put the complexities of the trauma recovery process into words—artwork does this much better!” – Joan Turkus, M.D.

Divorce is so common in our society that kids often get caught in the fight and suffered from traumatic experience. It could scar them for life if not treated. Graver events like war or abuse (mentally or physically) causes severe trauma in children. These children often lack the vocabulary to express how they feel verbally. Getting these feelings out is the first step toward recovery & sound mental health. Art is one way kids can express what’s in their minds. So, art has been used widely as a therapeutic tool for kids coping with trauma. There are a large body of studies to support the therapeutic benefits of creating art.
