Teens experience many forms of grief as they grow into adulthood - including death, divorce, moves, and loss of friendships.
Art therapy provides a creative, tangible, sensory outlet for adolescents to experiment, explore, practice, and ultimately process their grief.

This workshop will provide you with a toolbox of art and sensory techniques to engage with teens experiencing grief. You will be introduced to the Expressive Therapies Continuum, review the stages of grief from a developmental level, and engage with art
and sensory materials that are appropriate for adolescents.

Directives, materials, goals and objectives will be provided as a stepping stone to help teens; reduce stress, identify internal
and external supports, strengthen coping skills, and process grief. Participants will participate in an art experiential.

Class size is limited to 45.
