Art Therapy

Children’s Hospital of Michigan provides art therapy services which involve the use of art materials and creativity for children to express their thoughts and feelings. Art therapy is all about making and creating, not so much about a finished product.

A trained art therapist can work with children during their hospital stay to provide a number of benefits.

Art therapy can help children:

  • Reduce Stress
  • Relax
  • Share Feelings
  • Gain Confidence
  • Solve Problems
  • Make Choices
  • Express Themselves
     
 

Children who need a different way to express their thoughts and feelings, feel overwhelmed or are having trouble with their hospital experience may also benefit from the art therapy program.

For further information on art therapy services at Children’s Hospital of Michigan call (313) 745-5312.
