Domestic Violence and the Healing Properties of Art Making
October is National Domestic Violence Awareness month. I have known domestic violence situations and have witnessed them among friends and acquaintances. I have supported shelters in different ways. As I think about domestic violence again this month (and not just month, mind you), I think about how any form of violence can be helped even in a small way by the healing power of art.
In the spirit of healing, I wanted to share with you this very interesting interview posted on DomesticShelters.org about art practice designed to help those who have suffered from trauma. You can read the interview here.
If you support a credible domestic violence entity or you contribute to domestic violence healing, please let us hear about it. We will highlight you and/or your organization on our social media pages and help you create change. Feel free to email me your contact information: firstname.lastname@example.org.Thank you for caring enough about those who have suffered through this trauma and are working back toward their true selves.
