Can art help with healing trauma? New training program 2560 1808 Karin von Daler Healing Arts

We are nearing the end of 2020. It’s the most intense year I’ve ever experienced – in many different ways. There has been pressure, stress, and loss, but also many openings to new ways of being, connecting, and creating.

I believe more than ever that there is a need for creative, holistic, and natural approaches to the huge crises we are facing.

We need many healers and therapists who can provide creative, loving help to people who have experienced trauma. Trauma can manifest itself in many ways, but also as stress, tension, depression, anxiety, and difficult relationships. You probably know what I mean.

There is so much new knowledge about trauma that I use in my practice every day, woven together with art therapy, expressive arts, and other creative, sensory-based approaches.

I have spent much of 2020 creating a continuing education training course for therapists in art therapy and trauma therapy. The program opens in Danish in the spring of 2021 and in English in the Fall of 2021.

Christy Anne beautifully expresses what creative trauma healing is all about:

Like a flower in the desert
I had to grow in the cruelest weather,
holding on to every drop of rain
just to stay alive.
But it’s not enough to survive,
I want to bloom beneath the blazing sun,
and show you all of the colors
that live inside of me.
I want you to see what I can become.

– Christy Anne Martine
