ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to examine and understand the convergence arts therapy program for promoting the happiness of youths who suffer psychologically and mentally from the academic and higher grade advancement related stress, damages of school violence, and the media addictions in the middle school settings, and provide the basic data which may be applied in greater depth and with diversity. As for the research method, 3 convergence arts therapy programs were designed for each symptom in line with the domain and subcomponents of adolescent happiness. To verify the program, the FGI was conducted targeting 5 convergence art therapists, and the final program was derived based on the results therefrom. Each program was designed as a single session appropriate for symptom improvement. The program for each symptom ran for 90 minutes, and the process was consisted of the 3 stages of introduction, main activity, and wrap up. In the introduction stage, the therapist and the subject are introduced to each other via greetings of songs through the “Hello Song” and form their rapport. In this activity, a program that combines various areas of the convergence art therapy and the happiness components to help relieve the main symptoms complained of by the subject is conducted. In the wrap up stage, they share with each other what they felt, what they learned, and what they practice. Then, through the Good Bye Song, they say goodbye and finish the program off. It is hoped that the convergence art therapy would rise as a practical alternative for improving happiness through the symptom relief and improvement of subjects experiencing various difficulties in the field of school education, and play a role and function for the adolescent happiness of youth.
