Mission:
Art & Creativity for Healing was founded with a vision that the creative process and emotional healing often intersect when words are not adequate, and pain is too deep. Our programs are designed to work in conjunction with educational programs and therapeutic models (including traditional talk therapy) augmenting the benefits of these modalities with a unique creative approach. Specifically, our methods allow participants to learn a new way of communicating through creation and color that encourages emotional breakthroughs and further enhances the therapy process. Unlike other art programs that employ a loose format of free expression, our curriculum contains strictly guided exercises designed to elicit a creative response that encourages the release of stress issues, grief, anger and disappointment.
Results:
Since our inception, we have directly fostered transformational change in more than 40,000 children, women and families who have found our creative intervention a valuable tool to address the often-unbearable pain in their lives. With more than 35 non-profit program partners in Orange County we have created an effective methodology for reaching people in pain.
