Coat of Arms / Family Crest
Use this coat of arms printout as an artistic prompt. Ask your client to draw, paint, or use any other medium to represent themselves in each of the shield's quadrants. Tailor the topics to the client or group. For example, a client dealing with family issues can depict their role in the family in one section, something that makes their family special in another section, and a family tradition in another section. Ask clients to title their shield in the banner at the bottom.
We have had great success with this art therapy project in substance abuse and anger management groups, especially with teenagers. However, plenty of adults will really get into it too.
