Draw it Out (Seattle, May 12)

At any given time, 1 in 5 children is suffering from loss or difficult transition within the family. Without intervention, children who endure these hardships are likely to struggle in the future with issues of depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and other significant behavioral concerns.

Participants will work with Draw It Out, a therapeutic activity book for school-aged children, and will learn best practices for its use, as well as best practices for utilizing creative expression as a healing modality. Training includes one copy of Draw It Out and one Draw It Out Leader’s Companion.
