“For the Love of a Child” Lifetime?

Question by sophmorechica: “For the love of a child” lifetime?
A few days ago i watched “For the love of a child” on lifetime. It was about abused children and how they went to a place to be taken care of. If you ever saw, do you remember the lady who worked with the children when they painted, the one who had the daughter at home?
Well, i think that i would be interested i a career like that but im not sure what that profession is called. Im guessing it would be some sort of psychologist, but im not sure?
Do you know what it would be called?
What other professions deal with abused/hurt kids?

You are probably talking about being an art therapist. It is a specialized degree with a master’s, at least, in counseling, psychology, social work or a related field with a specialization in art therapy. However, as a counselor, with a master’s degree and licensed as a counselor by my state, I have utilized a projective technique which you can look up online called “House, Tree, Person” and “Kinetic Family Drawing.” These projective techniques are amazing in what children can tell you with their drawings. The most important “skill” needed to help children though is to have “eyes to see and ears to hear” because they will tell you with their words, their expressions and their drawings.

If you are attracted to that kind of work and want to learn more about the child welfare field, you can become a CASA volunteer and learn EVERYTHING about how to help these kinds of children.

I love Lifetime.
