ATOC works with children and adolescents struggling with a range of challenges resulting from family, peer, school and other societal pressures. At-risk youth populations serviced by ATOC also include children in foster care and court-involved youth. The art therapy group provides these young people with a safe place to express their emotions, to process their experiences, and to develop healthier ways to manage their anger in the real world. ATOC runs both co-ed and single-sex groups focused on pregnancy prevention and developing leadership skills in a number of programs throughout New York City and Westchester County.
