CBRE hosts expressive art therapy for disadvantaged families

They worked with the ChickenSoup Foundation for this project.

American commercial real estate services and investment firm CBRE has hosted two expressive art therapy workshops for children and parents from low-income families from Kwun Tong to help them learn how to relieve stress and express their emotions through art.

A group of CBRE volunteers assisted 50 beneficiaries to complete an art project guided by qualified art therapists from Expressive Arts Therapy Centre Company Limited.

The art therapy is conducted using sustainable art materials to encourage children and parents to vent their emotions in small groups by articulating their feelings and ideas through their creations.

“2020 has been an unprecedented year for many of us in Hong Kong, with day-to-day living pressures and mental wellness being some of the biggest challenges faced by many families in the city. CBRE is proud to be able to give back to our community by working with the like-minded ChickenSoup Foundation in the COVID-19 relief program, fulfilling our social responsibility to show our care for society’s most vulnerable children and their families in times like these,” said Tom Gaffney, CBRE’s regional managing director of The Greater Bay Area & Hong Kong.
