3/18/2021 - The Benefits of Art Therapy for Children

Art therapy has been shown to be an effective way to help children and their families cope with having a chronic illness such as kidney disease. It helps to ease the mental and emotional stress that often accompanies their battle with illness. Plus, it allows them to forget about the pain, even for a while, and just relax. Board Certified Art Therapists Raja Aossey and Kathy Peal explain the process, its benefits and how parents can connect with an art therapist or child life specialist for their child.
