Emotional growth and development – ARTON and The Taxback Group
On 12th May, our long-standing partners The Taxback Group were again with the children in the clinic of children's oncohematology at the University Hospital "St. Marina" in Varna. Together we do litle miracles!
Thanks to the art therapy the child managed to restore a sense of self dignity and to realize a wider repertoire of protective responses. Of great importance are the protective properties of art materials and the symbolic images that help to "retaining" of complex experiences and transform them into positive ones. Children find intuitively ways to interact with the material. This facilitates the integration of the personality of the child and have a concrete and ritual expression.
In addition to improving the sensory, social and emotional functioning the art-therapy gives to the children enjoyment, reduces their experiences of stress and increases their self-esteem by engaging with various creative designs or simply by studying different artistic materials. In this way children acquire life skills by one natural way. Art therapy encourages communication, emotional development and sensory integration, and also supports the children to interact in a natural and fun environment.
