Morganne Ray, LCSW's insight:

Slut Walk 2011

The Burlington community joined the movement of raising awareness of gender-based violence and victim blaming by taking part in a SlutWalk on Sept. 24. The e...
Morganne Ray, LCSW's insight:

Events like the Burlington Slut Walk can be so important to those who have survived trauma, where ever they are in the healing process. To folks who have recently experienced trauma, it is an opportunity to get social support, and see that there are those out there who have made it through. For those who are beginning to process their experience, it can be an outlet to tell the story to supportive others who can witness the pain and the strength of the individual, and/or practice mastery over a situation that has previously led to trauma. Organizing these types of events, and fighting back against the institutional oppressions that condone violence can be a way to reconnect to one's community and trade the identity of victim for an empowered survivor identity.

The Therapist in My Canvas - Psychology Tomorrow Magazine | Community Healing | Scoop.it

"The intensity of certain emotions, the rawness of certain experiences and the profundity of certain thoughts touch those aspects of our being that lie beyond the realms of expression in words. Certain situations are so intense and deep seated that it becomes difficult to simply explain them. They are to be felt, experienced and acknowledged in their own form.

 

"That is what a blank canvas can help establish and bolster."

Creative expression helps many people heal and many artists make use of traumatic experiences in their creative work. Psychologist Stephen A. Diamond, for example, notes that French sculptor, painter, and film maker Niki de Saint Phalle’s fury — "some of which stemmed from having been sexually abused by her father — fostered a fecund creativity, that served her well throughout her prolific career.” From post: Creative People and Trauma http://talentdevelop.com/6550/creative-people-and-trauma/
