What about me? When the teenagers engage with California Families in Focus (CFF), the younger siblings might feel left out. CFF specifically designed our expressive arts program for our teens’ siblings ages 5-12.
The program provides art, music, poetry and dance (AMPD) as tools for self-expression as well as communicating to heal from family trauma that may affect their emotional, physical, and cognitive development.
By providing artistic outlets, the children have an opportunity to explore what nurtures and empowers them, perhaps as an artist, musician, poet, or dancer.
“Self-expression should not be a challenge that demands extraordinary talent but
should be a right accessible to all.”
- Deeyah Khan, Norwegian-Pakistani British documentary film director and human rights activist
