Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this study was to determine if a therapeutic art education curriculum could be used to raise the self-esteem of children living in internats in Eastern Europe. The Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale was used to measure self-esteem.

Throughout the review of literature it was reported that children who grow up in internats face a variety of challenges including disability, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, attachment disorder, and are at a much higher risk of becoming involved in crime and trafficking.

This study used an art curriculum designed especially for children in internats during a holiday camp in Mukachevo, Ukraine. The results of the study indicate that the art education curriculum was beneficial to the self-esteem of the participants.
