Creative Resilience

An Art Therapy Group for Anxiety

IMG_5664.jpg

Introducing art therapy group programming designed for children ages 7-11 to help with managing stress and anxiety! If your child is struggling with stress or anxiety then keep reading about this group to see if this seems like a right fit. 

 

About the Group

Anxiety is becoming more and more common these days. There is so much going on in this world, there is sensory overload and learning to manage our emotions can feel like a lot. Anxiety is important. It is there to protect us. However, many of us are feeling anxiety everyday for long periods of time and this isn't how anxiety is supposed to function. 

The purpose of this group is to create a space for kids aged 7-11 to come and use their creative instincts to express themselves. When we are young we don't have the language or the awareness yet developed to express or manage our big emotions. This group will follow a 6 week outline that teaches about our emotions, how to notice them, how to communicate and more. 

The group is run in a group environment with others who might be dealing with the same feelings. Each week we create art and have conversation around the topics of anxiety and our emotions. If anything, my goal is to create a safe, non-judgmental space for kids to express in a creative and fun way. The kids gets to keep whatever they create and have access to a wide variety of materials. 

**BONUS: I have been working on a at home workbook for families to work through together to learn about anxiety. This is free for anyone who joins this group**


 

Weekly Group Outline:

Week One: What is anxiety?
Week Two: Anxiety and the body
Week Three: Anxiety and the brain
Week Four: Communication skills
Week Five: Coping Strategies and resources
Week Six: My strengths 

*Important Note* 
This group is not designed for individualized therapy. This is a general program that introduces tools to managing anxiety. If you feel that your child may benefit more from one-on-one therapy, please reach out.
