What IPTLooks Like
IPT for adults is a neuro-linguistic approach to processing and releasing emotions. We are able to reframe events in our lives--the event and memory doesn't change, but how it effects us changes--we regain our personal power.

IPT for children of young ages is different. We use coloring. We talk about feelings as light or heavy. We encourage the child to let the feeling go from the heart, through the arm to the paper. It's amazing how even very young children do this. Colors have meaning and more often than not, we see the corresponding color to emotion coming out on the paper, even though the child has no idea what the color means when they pick up the crayon.
