Supporting Resiliency and Well-being through Art in Young Children (May 4, 2018)

A presentation as part of the annual EDCA of PEI’s annual conference.

This highly interactive session will explore the distinctive outcomes associated with using art as therapy, and why it works. Participants will explore the concept of
using art therapy in the classroom to build resiliency and well-being in children, as well as how to speak to children about their artistic process. Case studies will include art therapy for grief and loss in the classroom, and using art therapy and storytelling for agency building in the context of a daycare.

Participants are asked to come prepared to create, and are asked to dress in clothing appropriate for crafting.
