An ongoing group for women survivors of sexual trauma provides participants an opportunity to connect with others and counteract the feelings of isolation that are common for this population. As members have engaged in art making processes, they have been able to voice feelings related to past traumas, decreasing symptoms and increasing their emotional balance and a sense of well being. Art therapy has given them a means to explore, express and validate their own and others’ experiences, and participants in this art therapy group have developed identities as artists and women of strength.
