Children at St. Barnabas Child Advocacy Center use art to express feelings

Sexual abuse is a crime that occurs all too often in the Bronx. Advocates want residents to know that there are ways to fight it and counseling is available. Sexually abused children at the St. Barnabas Child Advocacy Center use art to express their feelings. Advocates say a child may not be able to or may not want to talk about the abuse, so they can use art therapy as a way to explain what happened and what they are feeling. Once a child has expressed his or her feelings and a parent has acknowledged the abuse, the healing process can begin. Related Articles
