This is a method that uses simple drawing techniques and is designed to let a child process his or her feelings or worries, in a safe environment and at their own pace.

Drawing and Talking encourages each side of a child’s brain to work together to process memories by combining:

  • Drawing (creative) – which is a right-brained activity
  • Talking (verbal) – which is a left-brained activity

Some memories may be combined with high levels of emotion which are stored in the right brain and may be expressed in visual form through the child’s drawings.

Talking about the drawing allows a ‘THINKING PROCESS’ to take place which may help a child process their thoughts and feelings.
