60th Annual Conference of the European Branch of the American Counseling Association (EB-ACA)
2019-09-27 to 2019-09-28
Interested in incorporating art-making into your clinical practice with trauma survivors? This presentation addresses the power of art in recalling the traumatic event and accessing trauma-related emotions in a non-threatening way. Learn how art assists trauma survivors in identifying, expressing, and containing emotions by engaging in a process that creates a safe distance from painful feelings while providing a concrete vehicle to explore potentially volatile emotions. Artwork will be shown to illustrate this process.
