Creative Arts Therapy Program 1998-1999: Report and Evaluation (2000)

The objective of the project was to provide a program of creative arts therapy to literacy students at Victoria READ Society. The program was designed to offer students an opportunity to explore life issues through art in a group setting to facilitate awareness of behaviour or emotional issues which may interfere with the student's access to further training and future employment. The program was initiated by teaching staff at Victoria READ Society who recognised that many students need support beyond literacy training in order to achieve their goals or make changes to their personal circumstances.

This innovative project was established to determine if providing individual and group counselling sessions through the use of art therapy would help literacy learners to :
1- reduce personal and often overwhelming barriers to learning, and
2- improve a learner's ability to seek and give support in the class, at home and at work.
