Art-based activities can develop presilience and self-esteem, enabling children in need to cope better with ongoing stress and loss. "Holistic Arts Activities for Children and Young People" offers interventions and exercises drawn from practice and research, for practitioners to use as a basis for their own arts-based groups or one-to-one sessions. Holistic arts activities facilitate a spiritually sensitive approach. Mindfulness-based exercises underpin the approach, and include guided meditations in which a group imagines that they are clouds, or draw feelings and emotions while listening to music, to encourage awareness of the senses.
