Title: Art therapy with children who have experienced domestic violence in Singapore : a case study of a sibling Dyad art therapy
Synopsis:

The creative and dynamic nature of art expression offers a therapeutic intervention in the treatment for children who have experienced domestic violence. Art can be used as a medium for expression of feelings and thoughts and it is often utilized as a metaphor for the overwhelming events in the child’s life. This dissertation focuses on studying a pair of siblings who have experienced domestic violence. Current research describes that children who have experienced domestic violence may develop a wide range of problems that include attachment difficulties, behavioral, emotional and social problems (Malchiodi, 2008; Barnett, Miller-Perrin,& Perrin, 2011). This dissertation seeks to explore the contributing factors in sibling dyad art therapy that can help a pair of siblings to improve their behaviors and interpersonal skills. It also attempts to examine whether the siblings’ engagement in dyad art therapy can enhance communication amongst the siblings. It uses a qualitative case study approach to look at the art therapy process in the sibling dyad art therapy. The study took place at one of the family and child protection services in Singapore.
