Kids' Accomplishments in DSCYF
The staff of the Delaware Children’s Department utilize a variety of resources to help the children in our care receive the best and most appropriate services available. We strive to help children develop a strong sense of self and the ability to effectively communicate their thoughts and ideas. Through concerted efforts, we encourage kids to find their own strengths and discover the hidden talents they possess. These creative kids and the staff we work with them are proud of their accomplishments. This website provides insight into the therapeutic efforts of the department, the talent that these children possess and the thoughts and feelings of these young minds.
We encourage you to take the time to look at the work that has been done by so many of Delaware’s children over the years. It’s another opportunity for us to Think of the Child First! Encouraging children to continue writing, drawing, and learn different art techniques is a strength-based approach that can help make a difference in the lives of these children. The Delaware Children’s Department is proud to offer therapeutic approaches that fit into our System of Care philosophy.
Many kids view art as the best form of expression and as a vital part of rehabilitation. Art therapy is often used to help children convey their feelings and help with the healing process. The products produced through this therapy are often breathtaking and the impact it has on the youth is inspiring.

Writing has many of the same benefits as art. It serves as a wonderful way for youth to write down their experiences and express themselves in a way that verbal communication does not always completely convey. For children who are not as visual as others, writing can serve as an outlet and allow children to build up the sense of security, trust, and self-esteem that has been missing from their lives.
