Demystifying Trauma through Art Therapy
24 Oct 2020
Date: 24 October 2020
Time: 12.30pm - 1.30pm
Complex Trauma and Art Therapy
Trauma is often perceived as overwhelming and to be dealt with at a distance. Trauma, unfortunately, can be experienced by anyone, even in the most unexpected situations.
This workshop will provide you with an overview of the various types of trauma and how it impacts individuals emotionally, neurologically, and physically. This workshop will also include case sharing on how art therapy aids with processing trauma without having to directly delve into the traumatic experience.
This workshop is conducted by our very own art therapist, Buvenasvari Pragasam who provides art therapy for adolescents and working adults from diverse circumstances.
She previously conducted insightful art therapy sessions for female adolescents with complex trauma at a residential home and has worked with geriatric clients with profiles such as dementia, stroke survivors, Parkinson's disease and other chronic conditions at a nursing home. Having witnessed the progress of her clients, she is a motivated advocate and works with various organisations to aid their beneficiaries' healing processes.
Before embarking on her art therapy journey, she was an Educational Therapist at the Dyslexia Association of Singapore and conducted literacy remediation for her students with specific learning differences.
This workshop is part of the Mental ACT Symposium 2020: A Full Course Meal on Mental Health. A fantastic line up of 4 panel sessions and 12 workshops over four Saturdays this October.
Event is completely free and will be delivered virtually on Zoom. Slots fill up fast!
