Using Art Therapy to Address Bullying

Starr Commonwealth is a National Training Site for the LSCI Institute, which is how I happened to come across this great Blog posting from Starr's National Institute for Trauma and Loss in Children (TLC).  Cathy Malchiodi, Phd, LPCC, CPAT is a TLC Trainer and author of several books, chapters, and articles in the field of art therapy.  She writes this post to talk about using art therapy--and in particular collage--to help victims of bullying explore feelings of power and powerlessness.  In the activity she describes here, kids are encouraged to think about increasing their personal power when facing bullies:

My Baby Clothes Boutique has partnered with me to provide articles to the parenting community. Check out their site the next time you need adorable baby clothes, photo perfect baby headbands, or even just a warm baby hat for winter. They have it all!
