Peace: A Learned Solution commonly referred to as the PALS Program targets youth ages 3-12 that have been exposed to domestic violence either as victims or witnesses. This program utilizes music therapy, art therapy, play therapy and other expressive therapies to facilitate children’s recovery from their traumatic experiences. The goals of all expressive therapies are to enable children to gain mastery over their feelings that are affecting their behaviors and performance in educational and social environments. In the therapy session, children create artwork, play, use drama, and/or dance what is representative of their traumatic experience.
