Art Therapy International was founded in 2020.
Art Therapy International stem from the Hijman Degen Foundation, that was founded in 2006 and seized to exist at the end of 2019.
The work and legacy of the Hijman Degen Foundation will be carried on.
Art Therapy International aims to help people cope with psychological trauma suffered due to natural disasters, war or persecution. It does so by means of art therapy. To achieve this goal a small number of experienced and specialized art therapists are selected to do the practical work.
The art therapists are very much looking forward to continue their cooperation and help those in psychological need, banking on their decades of experience in psychosocial support.
Art Therapy International does not work directly with traumatized people, but trains local aid workers on the spot. It provides ‘train-the-trainer’ courses. Aid organizations in affected countries may submit a project proposal for training by Art Therapy International.
To be able to continue the activities, the Art Therapy International Foundation depends on donations and sponsoring by private individuals and (aid) organizations.
