Description de l'évenement

-Do your clients suffer from nightmares, flashbacks or intrusive thoughts?
-Do you know how to capture your clients’ traumatic experiences and transform them into a visual language?
-Do you understand how symbolic and metaphorical expression can be used as an intervention?

Nightmares, flashbacks, and intrusive thoughts are three of the most common symptoms reported by children, youth and adults who have experienced trauma. These effects are often the result of graphic imagery that is stored in limbic memory, inaccessible through cognitive methods alone.

Externalization of graphic imagery through the creation of two and three-dimensional art has the ability to lessen the cathartic communication of raw emotions and avoid the repetition of troubling memories. Capturing traumatic experiences and transforming them into a visual language leads to emotional reparation and recovery.

This workshop will examine the effective use of art in the treatment of trauma and explore how symbolic and metaphorical expression can be a creative, right-brain intervention, giving voice to the most unspeakable experiences.

Presenters will use specific case-related examples to demonstrate the method. The workshop is relevant to all professionals working with persistent nightmares, flashbacks and intrusive thoughts.

While most treatment providers are not trained as Art Therapists, all trauma treatment providers will need to use Expressive Arts in a helpful way.

Presenters will demonstrate a 5-step protocol for the Externalization of Graphic Imagery. Participants will have the opportunity to practice the protocol.
