All children are born with the capacity to develop and use all of the aspects of the organism to live healthy, productive, joyful lives. We know that trauma interrupts the healthy development of the child. There are also some very basic developmental aspects that can further thwart healthy development. An understanding of these hindrances is the first step toward helping children heal.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To list three components of the Therapeutic Process.
  2. To describe the most essential goal of the expressive techniques used with children.
