dc.description.abstractForensic clients often experience anxiety about being released back to the community from institutionalized atmospheres and present with low affect and self-esteem. This one group pretest/post-test design follows three forensic clients over a three-week, nine sessions treatment based on an art and trioing intervention. The intention of the intervention was to expose the client’s transferable skill, and investigate how those skills could be utilized in life experiences outside of the institution. Each of the participants completed a preliminary and concluding, Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale survey and The Depression, Anxiety Stress Scale survey, seven narratives, and seven artworks. The control group took the preliminary and concluding scales without participating in the intervention. Art and narrative therapies have shown to have positive results with the population. Focusing on positive skills motivates future achievement, success and well-being in forensic clients.en_US
