Abstract

This research paper undertakes the beginning steps of an intervention model for use in residential facilities. The value of art therapy with adolescent girls who struggle with self-harming behaviors is addressed through a contemporary lens, and the suggested interventions were created within the frame of a solution-focused approach. The review and analysis of literature surrounding group art therapy with female adolescents, the specific issues encountered by female adolescents and those who self-injure, the role of mindfulness, and considerations regarding attachment needs, will provide support for the
concept of a self-care themed art therapy group for female adolescents. A psychodynamic perspective will be used to understand the experience of adolescence and group session
dynamics in art therapy. The structure of the art therapy group intervention will be described, including duration and session content, and sample art directives and group
rituals are suggested through which the theme of self-care may be explored.
