   Child’s drawing of their family before the death.                        Child’s drawing of their family after the death.

Child’s Drawing—Before and After
   One of the art activities that the children’s group participates in is creating Before and After drawings. They create a
drawing of their family as they remember them before the death of their loved one and a drawing of their family after the
death. This activity is designed to create an opportunity for discussion about how the family is different now, but they are
still a family.
   The drawings above were done by an eight-year-old in our program. The child's mother was murdered and she attends
our program with her grandmother and three siblings.

                                                                     -8-
