coping. She helps them to normalize and validate the grief process they go through.
Britton holds a master’s degree in art therapy from the University of Louisville, where the first graduate program in art therapy was established. Art therapy is a way of getting in touch with difficult emotions through expression.
“Art as a process is very healing for people to work through difficult emotions,” she said. “It’s especially effective with children because children arc very often not verbal about their feelings.”
By doing artwork, children can graphically express the “chaos and ovcr-whelmingncss” they may be feeling. The process lets children get in touch with being a child again as many are forced to deal with issues beyond the usual experience of a child their age, Britton said.
Talking about the art after it is com
pleted is an important pan of the process, she said.
“They’ll do a drawing and we’ll ask them if they can remember a lime when they felt like that,” she said. “Lots of times that’s when the tears start to happen. Ait is a right-brained emotive function, so people that are very defensive about their emotions verbally (open up). It doesn’t really heal until it gets expressed.”
Britton said learning that grief is a
natural, normal and necessary process is important. Grief actually afreets the physiology, cutting the ability to process information to around IO percent, she said. Other reactions are shock, potest and disorganization.
Cost for the program, open to children ages six to IO years, is $5 per session. There are eight sequential sessions. For more information, call Teen Connection at 629-6571.
