Drawing Feelings Training: Unlocking Emotional Expression Through Art

Discover the transformative power of  Drawing Feelings Training, a therapeutic approach designed to help children express their emotions and experiences non-verbally. This method is especially beneficial for children who struggle to articulate their feelings verbally but enjoy the creative process of drawing.

In Drawing Feelings Training, children use colours and shapes to draw pictures while engaging in a gentle, supportive conversation with a trauma-informed practitioner. This process provides a safe and structured environment, allowing children to explore and process their emotions through art.

Furthermore, our training sessions delve into key themes to enhance the therapeutic experience:

  • The Self and Identity: Helping children explore their sense of self and personal identity through their drawings.
  • Archetypes: Understanding common symbols and themes that emerge in children’s artwork, based on Jungian psychology.
  • Emotional Landscapes: Using art to represent and navigate complex emotional states.

By integrating these themes, Drawing Feelings Training offers a comprehensive approach to emotional expression and healing. This method not only fosters creativity but also promotes emotional well-being and resilience.
