Founded by creative arts psychotherapists, Art of Parenting provides group and individual therapeutic services, integrating art and verbalization for self-exploration and transformation. The creative process adds further dimension for expanding awareness, self-expression, and self-care, which are reflected in more connected relationships with others.
Art of Parenting specializes in the early stages of family planning and familial growth. We focus on the parents' emotional and psychological process, which affect children’s behaviors. Our approach emphasizes becoming aware of personal experience in the moment. In groups, the environment allows participants to join with one another, while witnessing the journeys of others and elucidating their own experiences. As art therapists we select themes, materials, and projects that facilitate self-exploration and bonding.
To best serve our diverse community, AOP is available to come to other sites and offers services in English, Portuguese, and Spanish.
