Title: From chaos to restoration: enhancing resilence through individual art therapy with a young girl who has a mother that is incarnated
Synopsis:

This qualitative single case study was guided by the research question: in what ways might art therapy with spontaneous play help to enhance resilience in children and young person who have experienced complex trauma and with a mother that is incarcerated? The impact of separation between mother and child is great and it creates insecure attachment in child’s life. Restoration in the midst of chaos is difficult for individuals who might be going back to complex family environments. Art therapy provided a context of self-expression for children and young persons who have perienced complex trauma and with mothers that are incarcerated. The use of art therapy with spontaneous play was being explored to enhance resilience from a psychodynamic art psychotherapeutic lens. The data collected and documented in this thesis suggested that art and play are creative tools that can be used as personal symbols and metaphors, which enabled children to create, re-imagine and transform their difficult personal experiences into narratives with empowerment. With mother being incarcerated, individual art therapy was provided to enhance resilience in ayoung girl who has experienced complex trauma.
