From a Good-enough Mother to a Good-enough Sister: Art therapy with Multicultural Groups of Refugees

Main Article Content

Blanca Haddad


This article is a transcription of a presentation I gave at the International Art Therapy Conference at Goldsmiths (University of London) in April 2013, about the work that I have done over the past three years as a group art therapist with refugees in Barcelona, Spain. Rather than an academic or scientific presentation, this article is a testimony to the dilemmas that I confronted as a therapist, and as a citizen, as a result of the work with refugees and those affected by war and persecution. The images included in this article were produced by the members of the art therapy groups (See images and testimonies).
