Drawing pictures can be key tool in investigations of child abuse | Teaching Art To Children | Scoop.it
According to Dr. Carmit Katz of Tel Aviv University's Bob Shapell School of Social Work, illustrations by children can be a critical tool in forensic investigations of child abuse.
Mae Fishburn's insight:

Huh, wow, kids being able to express what happened to them in a traumatic event instead of using words is helpful for the child and the investigation? People need to know this to make sure the child telling doesn't hurt themselves from telling, in case something happens.

Program: Art History Minor - Western Washington University - Acalog ACMS™

Mae Fishburn's insight:

This is the only Art minor WWU offers, so I think I won't do that because I will be working more with hands-on art as an Art Therapist. Although, I could take Art as a major and Psychology as a minor. It is good to know these things.

Psychiatry is another option in the same field of study. It involves going through medical schoop though, so I'm not sure if I want to do that. If I did, I would be able to fill perscriptions without my patients needing to go to a doctor as I would be one.

Mae Fishburn's insight:

I need to look into this as it is a powerful image. Childhood sexual abuse is rarely talked about and the subject is blocked from the school's computers. The description talks about how must people who've experienced this are called "victem" or "surviors". The person who made this talks about how they are just people who have had a bad experience happen to them and how art therapy has helped them cope.
