How the Creative Arts Can Be Useful Coping Tools for Adolescents

The purpose of this thesis is to explore the impact of using creative arts such as art, music, theatre arts and writing as coping tools and creating a sense of belonging, a sense of self-worth and a sense of life and goal direction for adolescents. Drawing on biological, psychological and social data, this researcher wishes to determine whether a relationship between using creative arts as coping tools can enhance adolescents’ ability to cope with their bio-psycho and social growth.
