Coram Creative Therapies Head Addresses Attachment and Arts

Coram Creative Therapies Head Addresses Attachment and Arts

The Head of Parenting and Creative Therapies at Coram is to address a British Association of Art Therapists (BAAT) conference on Attachment and the Arts

Mary Rose Brady will illustrate through case examples and images how Coram uses Art Therapy to support children with complex needs to externalise bodily senses, name ‘gut feelings’ and begin to rationalise through thinking the previously unthinkable.

According to YoungMinds www.youngminds.org.uk, one in 10 children and young people aged five to 16 suffer from a diagnosable mental health disorder, equivalent to three children in each classroom. If these issues are not addressed early they are likely to become more severe and have detrimental long-term impact on quality of life. Arts therapies have a long track record in building successful engagement with so-called hard to engage children and young people, enabling them to be both 'seen and heard'.
