Roshida is an international center for children’s drawing analysis. The center was established to provide professionals and parents, from all over the world, with updated and comprehensive knowledge about children’s drawings.
We have created an advanced learning center, which is based on video lessons, books, workbook and guides based on case study reviews to enable everyone to learn about this fascinating subject. For those who seek professional help, based on individual interpretation of children’s drawings, we offer expert reviews of the drawings and a written summary about the child’s personality, difficulties and strengths.

“When working with families, it is essential to provide parents with as many tools and methods as possible to enable them to strengthen their children and thus improve the general atmosphere at home. Getting the parents to be better aware of their child’s condition using his drawings is about 70% of the way to success. I strongly believe that through drawings it is possible to reveal the source of children’s emotional difficulties, as well as the optimal solution “.
