Domestic violence, specifically, that which is perpetrated against women and children, causes physical, mental, and emotional trauma, resulting in a variety of pervasive injuries and disorders.  Art Therapy provides the children and mothers a way to work through their mental and emotional issue with a trained counsellor and aids in the healing process. 

SI Beenligh provides the funding for several art therapy workshops throughout the year.
