(through Relationship and Sexual Violence Prevention and Services)
Tuesdays 4:00 – 5:30 p.m.
led by Nancy Sandoval
Participants are provided a safe environment to express themselves and tell their stories, build resilience, identify and name emotions, self-regulate, gain a stronger sense of self-worth and much more. Healing arts follows a trauma-informed approach, acknowledging that trauma is prevalent and the impacts are far reaching. Trauma experiences, trauma responses and healing do not occur in isolation but in the context of the person, family and community. The hands-on creation of art has been shown to reduce distress, increase self-reflection and self-awareness, alter behavior and thinking patterns, have positive physical effects and build resilience—all of which play a key role in life transformation. Requires group screen before joining.
