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.
