Abstract: The aim of this study is to explore and understand the life experiences of young women involved with delinquent behaviours by using expressive arts therapy. Seven young women aged between 16 and 18 years old placed in the Tunas Bakti School were selected using purposive sampling. All study participants underwent the expressive art therapy in counselling groups. This study used a phenomenological method for understanding the experiences of their lives better. The strategy of triangulation of data from a variety of sources such as interviews, observation and document analysis were used to collect data. The findings have identified a number of themes which are family dynamics, risky behaviours and criminal activities, formal education, abuse, psychological issues and appreciation of religious. The implications of the findings are also discussed.
