The horrible events in Nice, France yesterday remind us that trauma has become a part of everyday experience for far too many people. With the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Syria at least one generation of children is growing up knowing little except trauma in their lives. Today’s post reports on the good effects that group art therapy is having for young refugees in Turkey. Arts therapy is desperately needed throughout the region!
“Group art therapy shows promise in reducing a wide range of psychological symptoms commonly experienced by refugee children, according to a pilot study of Syrian refugee children living in Turkey, published in the journal, Vulnerable Children and Youth Studies.”
