Diabetes Art Therapy Support Group for Kids
This group will run one time per month (the third Thursday) and is lead by Beth Ann Short ATR. This art therapy group is for participants 18 and younger. This group furnishes older kids with the opportunity to be role-models/mentors to younger children newly diagnosed. Younger participants will see hope in their stories. The Diabetes support groups are led by a Master's Level Art Therapist.Groups will be structured with a check-in time, a short art directive and time for members to process and discuss art created. Each week the group will be led using an art therapy experiential to explore feelings and struggles using a specific directive that will serve as a vehicle for group conversation. Some topics addressed in this group include when participants first were diagnosed, needles, family support and tips for managing in our busy world. A healthy snack will be available.
It is recommended that participants call or email within 24 hours of the group to RSVP
