INTRA AND INTERPERSONAL CONFLICT AMONG TEEN MOTHERS AND THE MUSEUM ART THERAPY APPROACH
Teen mothers face numerous psychological problems because of the early engagement in sexual activities out of wedlock and the aftermath effects. Most of these female adolescents are purported to be coming from socially and economically maginalised environments, hence opt for solace in early sexual engagement, pregnancy and at times repeated childbearing, beinga way to resolve this adolescence crisis. The problem of a childbearing her own child promptes proffessionals in the field of psychology to develop programs that address adolescents’ psychosocial needs. This study employs a qualitative desk research approach, through selecting relevant related literature to the study, grouping the literature according to theme and then analsysing the literature. The study explored the forces that compel the female teens into early parenthood, the intra and interpersonal conflict among these females, and the appropriateness of museum art therapy to addressing this problem.Findings of the study show that museum art therapy is a relevant creative psychological intervention, significantly used to explore, and understand and unearth the underlying, conflict within the teenage parents.
