Art Therapy | Medical Foundation for the Care of Victims of Torture

 

Art Therapy

The Medical Foundation offers art therapy to children and adults. In addition, it also has an Open Studio where adult clients can express thesmelves artistically outside of the therapeutic process. All three aspects of our work are detailed below.

Working with Children

The following is an extract from Art Therapy in Schools: Working with Children who have Experienced Political Violence and Torture; A Booklet for Teachers by MF therapists Debra Kalmanowitz (MA, RATh Arts Therapist) and Sheila Kasabova (MA Counselling Aspects in Teaching and Learning), who work with the Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy Team.

The booklet, the product of a three-year project run by the MF in six primary schools and a secondary school in north London, helping children between the ages of eight and fourteen, was devised to inform teachers and other educational workers how art therapy works, and introduce them to the realities of torture and violence.

  1. Thank you for this article. It is “easier” to talk about art therapy for different types of abuse including rape and things that cause PTSD but it is an entirely different thing to talk about torture. People don’t really handle the reality of it very well especially when it comes to children.

  2. Hi! I’m writing to you from Lima, Perú. I’m a clinical psychologist who is interested on doing a MA in Art therapy. I’ve always done my own personal works of art, and now I woul love to join my two biggest interests, art and psychology. I woul like to know which programmes or university’s in Europe are the best known to do an MA in art therapy. Your blog is very interesting and the information helps a lot to give an idea of the art therapy world. Thank you.
