Title: Art therapy and relocated children : art therapy as a tool for assessment and treatment for relocated children
Synopsis:

This work focuses on the potential role of Art Therapy in assisting expatriating children and families to adjust to a new cultural environment. Its objectives are to find whether relocation of children to a cultural environment other then that of their country of origin has an effect that can be diagnosed by Art Therapy and to suggest the use of Art Therapy for diagnosis of, and treatment for the phenomena related to relocation of children. The research is a qualitative research, based on case studies of three children of ages six to nine years old, using drawing assessment, interviews and questionnaires. Various appearances of stress that has been identified through children's artwork in the research might have been triggered by relocation. Art Therapy is a well suited technique to diagnose and treat stress related to relocation especially thanks to the intercultural quality of art as a language.
