One of the projects closest to our hearts is the art & play therapy project for children who have been abused, severely neglected and/or abandoned. We are pleased to announce that it continues during the summer and, whenever possible, we organise the sessions as outdoor activities.
The link between art and psycho-emotional health has been scientifically acknowledged towards the end of the nineteenth century. Among the results we are targeting through this project are:
- understanding emotions and increasing relational capacity,
- improving attention and concentration skills, lowering tension and frustration,
- developing communication and expression capacities, developing creative imagination,
- the ability to overcome fears and phobias.
Along with children’s sessions, adoptive or foster parents are attending support groups where we learn how to effectively manage difficult interactions.
