WHAT HAVE WE BEEN UP TO LATELY?

 
 

We have been daring to be darling of course!

Dareling has written a two-page article on Art Therapy which was published in the 29th issue of Support magazine. The article is about what Art Therapy is and who can benefit from it. Also very important, we think, is the part on why Art Therapy works! Click
here for the complete text in Dutch. 

In March Dareling attended a three-day series of Art Therapy workshops facilitated by Dr. Robert Winter, of the Lenoir-Rhyne University of North Carolina, organised by 
M.I.C. N.V. The workshops from Dr. Winter are always very inspiring and it is encouraging to see how others, who may have never even heard about Art Therapy, slowly start to understand the powerful healing that Art Therapy can give.

Then in July we gave two workshops at the Kids Summercamp of the 
Kirtana 168 yoga center. Click here for a description and a few pictures.

In August Dareling was invited by the school Eligia Martier to give four guest classes. The classes served as an introduction of the possibilities of Art Therapy to the students. It was great to see how the students started to understand that there is more behind a simple drawing from a child. We really enjoyed having the opportunity to teach about some of the warning signals in a child's artwork.  

And in September Dareling gave a presentation about Art Therapy at the Saint Elisabeth Hospital for the doctors and specialists from the Pediatric Department. That was pretty exciting and it took some improvising, but it clearly showed us that we too need to remember to dare to be darling. We are all capable of so much more than we think, we just need to let go of expectations and allow our inner Dareling to come out and flow freely. See the blog for more about presentation.


And now..... we are up to much more..... Please see below for our Art Groups starting in February. With a special early bird discount if you register before December 31st!


Stay tuned for more news soon. Just a little teaser.... 





ART GROUPS


Dareling will start with creative ART GROUPS this February 2013!

There will be separate groups for children and adults, so moms and dads also get a chance to experience becoming a Dareling!


In these creative Art Groups the focus will be on plastic arts like drawing and painting, but we will also offer other activities to tickle the creative itch of each participant.

Participating in one of our Art Groups normally costs 75 Nafl. (excl. o.b.), but if you PRE-REGISTER before December 31st you get a 15% early bird discount!

Just let us know if you are interested or would like more information by filling out the form on our website. By clicking on the previous link you will be redirected to our website, where you will find additional information about benefits for children who particpate in art groups.



THIS WILL MAKE FOR A MOST UNIQUE HOLIDAY GIFT THIS SEASON, SO PLEASE SHARE WITH ANYBODY!





SESSIONS AT DARELING


WE WOULD LIKE TO TAKE THIS CHANCE TO EXPLAIN A BIT ABOUT TREATMENT AT DARELING.

We understand that it is difficult to determine if Art Therapy is something that will work for your child.

That is why all our intake sessions are free. The intake can be personal, by phone or through email. With personal intakes we also have half a session with the child.


Usually we have 5 sessions and then we, the parent and the therapist, will have a conversation where we can discuss the report and the parent has a chance to decide if they want to book more sessions or not.

As of yet, Art Therapy is not covered by the insurance companies. This means that payment is up to the parent.
Each session, including the one with the parent to discuss the report, costs 75 ANG excl. 6% ob.

QUICK TIP


IMAGINE YOUR CHILD SHOWS YOU THEIR NEWEST ARTWORK

Please put some thought into your reaction.

Don't judge: 'Oh this is beautiful!'. Your children weren't born yesterday, they know it's no masterpiece.

Don't interpret: 'what a nice tree!'. When they have put so much effort into making a space rocket.

Don't point out their faults: 'you forgot the 4th wheel'. In their newly made-up fantasy world, a car can have 3 wheels.


Instead you can say: 'wow that seems to be a very special kind of blue animal. Tell me more!'

Two weeks later, your child may call the special blue animal a 'water elf'. This is completely fine and a necessary step in their development. Just go along with it and allow the wonder of their fantasy to show you the way into their world.
