Abstract

The following paper summarizes some issues relating to the cross-cultural dimension of art therapy. The paper describes a creative and verbal expression of an immigrant child in a classroom setting. Art and creative expression is seen to be a powerful tool in expressing the experience of immigrants and refugees. The primary goal of this study was to observe and discuss graphic representations in the content of the drawings as well as to discuss the themes in the content of verbal (narrative) description produced by a nine-year old boy of immigrant parents. Art therapists are confronted with unusual problems in the areas of intervention, interpretation and communication when dealing with clients from other cultures. However, drawings and paintings (graphic representation) reflect the participants' message about their conflicts and their means of dealing with them.
