A VISUAL VOICE: Women’s Use of Art in Healing from Abusive Relationships

June 23, 2008

Here’s an interesting project should anyone fitting the criteria wish to get involved. Email me at secretagentartist@hotmail.com and I’ll pass your details on…

Researcher doing a dissertation for an Art Psychotherapy MA, said:

A VISUAL VOICE: Women’s Use of Art in Healing from Abusive Relationships
If anyone out there has – or knows someone who has – used art or creativity in their healing from an (adult) abusive relationship… and would like to contribute some of their experiences, please let me know.  The ‘art’ bit can be anything from sewing your own clothes or knitting a scarf or two, to painting, sculpting, or making furniture – in other words anything creative.
