This presentation describes each step of a humanitarian mission in Peru so that it can be replicated in other parts of the US, Latin America, and the world. It incorporates the trauma-informed START-UP arts therapy and Strengthening Families programs. Children’s art work will illustrate the effectiveness of these culturally-adapted programs.
Describe the steps necessary to plan and implement an arts therapeutic program in community-based, school-focused centers.
Learn how to adapt and implement the early intervention, trauma-informed START-UP arts therapy program and the Strengthening Families Program to work with children living in similar conditions as the ones in the US and Peru.
Understand and describe the effectiveness of these programs as illustrated through case studies of Tiempo Fuera children’s art work.
