Indonesia, the world's largest archipelagic state, is prone to natural disasters because of its position within the Ring of Fire. As a nation of islands seemingly always vulnerable to natural disasters, there is a dire need for effective mental health and psychosocial interventions, including art therapy, to be developed and integrated into disaster response programs. The purpose of this program evaluation is to understand how art therapy supported children survivors of the 2018 Lombok earthquakes during the early phase of a disaster response program.
