Finding peace and healing is important for our health in a world that goes at a fast pace. Art therapy is a new method that uses creation to help people heal mentally and emotionally. It has become a powerful way for people to express themselves and grow as people. In this situation, our 6 art therapy workshops have been a beacon of light, providing a platform for participants to explore their inner worlds while embracing the beauty of three languages: Slovak, English, and Ukrainian.
The toolkit that youth workers made for our art therapy workshops made them even better. This comprehensive resource had materials in Slovak, English, and Ukrainian for running the workshops. The toolkit had language-sensitive questions, exercises that could be changed, and cultural considerations. This made sure that people who spoke different languages could fully take part in the healing process.
