I Create What I Believe! Self-Awareness Art Program
I Create What I Believe! is a groundbreaking approach to drawing that enables both children and adults to reduce stress, release bottled-up emotions, and gain a deeper sense of self with just crayons and paper. Individuals suffering from trauma, and PTSD have found this program to be very useful in their healing. It also is currently being used successfully in many Head Start schools and preschools programs in the United States to help young children learn to self-regulate, place their mind in a ‘learning ready’ state and increase their resiliency.
This simple and non-threatening approach to drawing incorporates the introspective benefits of the creative process with science. This anomaly can also help an individual understand how stress and trauma can impact his or her body, cloud their perceptions and impair their ability to thrive.
