Coram's ground-breaking art and music therapy help children and young people overcome complex and traumatic backgrounds every day.
Some children may have witnessed violence or experienced neglect and some have physical or psychological conditions that could see them socially isolated.They are often unable to understand or explain their feelings. Watch our four-minute film clip to see how our Creative Therapies can help.
Helping children and young people
Our art and music therapy sessions are delivered at our Coram Campus in London, in schools and in the community. They are based on our rich musical and artistic heritage - the composer Handel and the artist Hogarth were two of Coram's earliest supporters.
The impact of Coram's creative therapy
More than 90% of parents reported their child's behavioural issues improved after attending creative therapy. Positive results include:
- Increased concentration and attention skills.
- Improved family and social relationships.
- Enhanced communication and speech skills.
- Increased confidence.
For many children and young people it is the first step towards finding ways of dealing with their feelings of loss, frustration and emotional trauma so that they can start to learn to trust, love and lead happier lives.
