Art Therapy in Action

The Guardian has a slideshow of Syrian childrens’ art in a refugee camp in Turkey. It serves as a timely reminder of the real world importance of helping victims of trauma find a way to express themselves to process their experiences. Art therapy can serve as a healing force for many issues, as seen by the sampling of books in our collection below.
