The Cumberland County Community Coalition for the Prevention of Child Sexual Abuse in conjunction with the Child Advocacy Center will participate in the 19 Days of Child Abuse Prevention Campaign from November 1-19. Each year our goal of the campaign is to increase commitment, activities, and education and to mobilize communities throughout the world around child abuse prevention. The 19 Days Campaign serves as a reminder to all of us that there is something each of us can do to make a difference in our community to prevent child abuse.
The use of creative arts in counseling has been practiced and encouraged for years as a supportive tool in treatment. In 2016, I recall asking Roberta, our executive director, for funding to purchase creative art supplies: games, gel pens, canvas, paints, workbooks, and journals. In 2018, the first boys’ group primary focus was the incorporation of creative music to encourage boys to identify and express their thoughts and feelings. The idea was inspired by J. Cole, a rapper with roots in Fayetteville, who reportedly kept notebooks of original song lyrics he composed throughout life about life that led to some of his success.
