Abstract:

Childhood is a developmental phase that greatly determines success in the next developmental phase. This golden period is the most effective period for stimulating cognitive, emotional, affective, and motor functions. Many important problems occur in the early childhood development phase which give rise to anxiety and even trauma. The research method used in this research is descriptive qualitative. Descriptive qualitative research is in the form of research using a case study method or approach. The research results explain that to overcome this, appropriate therapy methods are needed to suit the child's developmental age. "Finger painting" is a choice of "self-healing" method that can be done independently by children by activating fine motor sensors, imagination, and cognitive functions to stimulate memory. This method fosters feelings of security, comfort, and can overcome the anxiety experienced by children. An additional benefit of finger painting as a self-healing method is that children can develop better "self-development" abilities in the future.
