A Window Between Worlds
Using a therapeutic art program called A Window Between Worlds (AWBW) we are now able to offer children and teens a different medium by which to express themselves. By creating art projects, this new model allows children and teens to rebuild their self confidence, and also gives them a positive way to handle the various emotions they may be experiencing. For more information about AWBW, you can log on to their website at www.awbw.org or call one of our offices.
