My practice-led research study presents a triadic model of connectedness with First Nations foster children and their Indigenous caregivers in Canada. The term triadic art therapy refers to the involvement of an interpersonal dyad in joint art-making sessions with an art therapist who is attending to their cultural connectedness as a third element in their relationship.
