1. Objectifs


Intentions :
« Although there is much research concerning general skills based treatment for this population, there seems to be very little inquiry into group art therapy approaches. What are the treatment needs of children with aggressive behaviour and how can group art therapy best meet these needs? Using a ’Historical/Theoretical Construction Research’ lens, it is precisely this area that I wish to explore. » (p. 3-4)

3. Résumé


« Phenomenological analysis of the literature and interviews revealed treatment needs of Prevention, Self Expression, Relationship, Behavioural Interventions, Groups, Social Skills, Creative Arts and Family and Teacher Communication, Self-Expression was the most commonly identified treatment need. Based on these needs, recommendations are made for the construction of school-based, Creative-Expressive therapy group. Integral elements of this constructed intervention are presented as sub-categories of the main identified treatment needs. Communication with Teachers and Parents is advised, in combination with Parent Training or Family Therapy. » (p. iii)
