Art Therapy & Intergenerational Trauma: A Community Art Response    
Presented by Michelle Harris, ATR-BC
This workshop will help address the clinical needs of clients with trauma exposure, specifically incest.  The ongoing Survivor Quilt Project will be highlighted as an example of a community art response to the topic of incest in our community and participants will have the opportunity to engage in creating a piece of a Survivor Quilt.
By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
  1. Demonstrate a community-based, art therapy approach for reducing the isolation, shame, stigma and negative stereotypes historically experienced by incest survivors when they speak out.
  2. Describe how community art-making, such as the Survivor Quilt Project, can be used as a therapeutic resource to offer the compassion, strength, creativity, in response to sexual violence.
  3. Identify 3 reasons why studio-based art therapy is a strength-based approach to support clients with trauma exposure.
