Creative arts therapy is the method used with the purpose of psychological healing and rehabilitation into the mainstream society. The children described belong to an increasing number of victims of the sex trade and trafficking, often living on the streets. These children have been rescued from various forms of abuse and are currently living in a children's welfare home in the metropolitan city of Kolkata, India. An overview the creative arts therapy model and detailed case studies describe how the author provides a therapeutic environment to reclaim and rediscover the inner child of these lost girls and enable the development of healthy and trusting relationships with peers and adults in the mainstream society. The modality of creative arts therapy used in this research has been illustrated through session vignettes to explain the creative and therapeutic process that the children undertook to explore and express a variety of emotions and found ways to communicate using metaphors, storytelling and art to expand their non-verbal expressive language repertoire. Throughout the presentation modified artwork show how these children were able to use creative arts therapy to develop confidence, which will help them to reintegrate into the mainstream society.
