Loss is an inevitable part of life. The natural healing process, grief, can vary dramatically from person to person. Additionally, children might react differently to loss than the adults in their lives and express their grief in different ways. The reasons for grief are many and can include loss of a loved one, a loss due to illness, a change in relationship, a job related loss, or a life transition. No matter the size of the loss, each is meaningful and personal.
Words often fall short to the full body experience of grief. Creative expression provides a container to give permission to all that we are experiencing. Art Therapy can help you begin to create meaning to move forward in the healing process.
