Title: Integrating digital art therapy in the treatment of Singaporean adolescents in foster care
Synopsis:

Traditional art materials such as painting, sculpture, collage and mixed media have been commonly used in the art therapy field. These art materials or tools have been used for evaluation, sublimation, and emotional release in clinical interventions. Each tool has their own distinctiveness and each are able to stimulate different therapeutic effects. The computer is one of the most growing and prevalent art mediums of today’s society. Since digital art technology has rapidly evolved and become user-friendly, these have been incorporated for educational and even therapeutic purposes. Many art therapists such as Canter (1987), Parker-Bell (2011), Thong (2007), Gussak & Nyce (2011), McLeod (2011), Austin (2010), Orr (2010), Malchiodi (2012), have incorporated digital art with therapy interventions and found digital art making can be utilized as an additional and valid medium in the art therapy field. This qualitative case series study illustrates both traditional art making method such as drawing and collage, combined and enhanced with computer art programs such as Adobe, Photoshop, Microsoft Word, Corel, Painter and Styx software can work hand in hand and can be utilized as a medium for intervention with a Singaporean child and adolescent in foster care treatment. This study will also elaborate the digital art properties that impacted the therapeutic process of the two adolescents in Singapore foster care setting.
