What is Healing Through The Arts?


Healing through the arts is an approach to healing, shifting from fear and doubt to self-empowerment and self-discovery. It is the belief that the creative process involved in the making of art is healing and life-enhancing. You do not have to be an artist just have a story to share. Art Therapy has shown to increase self-awareness, help cope with stressful experiences and improve the quality of life”

How Does MJE Help Women Through  Art Therapy?

At Mothers For Justice and Equality, we receive the opportunity to interact with IMG_1843women, girls, individuals from all paths of life. Many times these individuals have been through more pain and troubles than many of us can imagine in our adult lives. They either do not know how to cope and are looking for a safe haven in order to heal or they are filled with so much grief that they need the appropriate coping mechanisms in order to express themselves accurately.

This is why MJE created the healing through the arts program. This program is intended to help women heal, express themselves, to calm the mind from whatever has been burdening them for so long. Art therapy has proven very effective due to the amount of concentration it requires.
