No shortage of sassy possibly inappropriate mugs, in the art and therapy studio. Wearing rubber boots with my skirt, on a raaaaainy day.

The Kids Book of Questions! I totally recommend this book for parents and anyone working with kids. It's an awesome resource for road trips, ice breakers, rapport building, after school, therapy etc.. I first owned this book when I was a YM-YWCA camp Counsellor.
.
Today, I used it with a 12 year old with anxiety and a 15 year old with depression (both painted and listened to vinyl, while answering). Kid counselling and professional art therapy~ I really love it.

Big feelings today, in the therapy room. For over 15 years, I've been honoured to hold the stories of residential school survivors and facilitate even a tiny bit of healing. After 20 years of supporting sexual abuse survivors, mostly First Nations ~ this album, Gord's contribution to education and Canadian families and the graphic novel ~ are very meaningful to me. Not in a media frenzy-the-day-after-a-superstar-passes-attention-way. Gord's passing and this music are a haunting reminder to spark the healing potential in all of us. (I'm teary typing this~ never wear mascara to therapy folks).
.
Have a question about Residential School? Ask someone. Ask me. Keep creating this super important Canadian discourse. Let's get it in school curriculums and accessible to all.

Turn up the volume. Feel your feelings. RIP Gord. .

FRIDA KAHLO ~ THE GRANDMOTHER of ART THERAPY?
{“I suffered two grave accidents in my life,” Kahlo said. “One is which a streetcar knocked me down and the other was Diego.” The mix of both her physical and emotional pain came together in one place: the canvas. Her art has been defined as something real, cruel and brutally honest, yet beautiful.

In her lifetime, Kahlo produced over 200 paintings, sketches and drawings related to her life of physical and emotional turmoil. Of the 143 paintings she created, 55 were self-portraits of which many have said cannot be disconnected from her life. Her paintings were her biography. 
The use of art and creativity allows for people to communicate, overcome stress and become more in tune with who they are and how they feel. In psychology, art is used to enhance mental health and to treat psychological disorders resulting in art therapy.

The American Art Therapy Association describes art therapy “is based on the belief that the creative process involved in artistic self-expression helps people to resolve conflicts and problems, develop interpersonal skills, manage behavior, reduce stress, increase self-esteem and self-awareness, and achieve insight.” Although art therapy did not formalize until the mid-1900s, Kahlo definitely used it in her own life to cope with the stresses of her physical limitations and emotional instability. Whether she knew it or not, Kahlo could be considered the grandmother of Art Therapy. Not only did she use it to keep herself going, but it was and has been shared with all the world through her existing art pieces, life story and iconic figure of strength.} ~DailyVitamina.com
.
Jen here~ there is debate about "art as therapy" vs. "art therapy". The latter involves a relationship with a professional Art Therapist. I'm excited to break it down for you more, this fall. Frida is one of my favorite artists (& used art AS therapy).
