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 of all ages during their hospital stay to help with emotional expression.

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.
