Pediatric Expressive Therapy Group

The purpose of this expressive therapies group is to allow children and adolescents the opportunity to gradually explore their thoughts and feelings related to their traumatic experiences in a safe, non-threatening environment.

Expressive therapies (painting, drawing, clay-making, therapeutic games, etc.) provide children and adolescents with the opportunity and freedom to explore and express their thoughts and feelings in a therapeutic manner.

The pediatric group meets at the same time and place as the adult group. Please call 401-606-4210 or email for more information.
