Self Esteem through Art Therapy

We are starting up a Self Esteem through Art Therapy group for the sex offenders and the mentally ill inmates, so during supervision, we all brainstormed directives. I asked everyone to think about the Good Lives Model and also high risk factors for sex offenders, so we could reference those when we write up the lesson plan. Everyone had great ideas from a collage of what the patient is good at to drawing himself as a superhero to puppet making and role play. The great thing about making the lesson plan a collaborative effort is that we came up with a variety of creative and effective directives for a 12 week quarter.
