À propos du livre
Bearing Witness to Trauma: An Intersubjective Approach to Cross-Cultural Art Therapy for Trauma is the result of my doctoral research in which I investigated the use of therapist-made art as an intersubjective tool in cross-cultural treatment of severely traumatized refugees and clients from the Middle East, Eastern Europe, and Latin America. The focal subject of the investigation was a hermeneutic inquiry into how therapist-made art aided the formation of a deeply empathic, intersubjective space between therapist and client. In addition to facilitating attunement and understanding, my art served as a proxy witness to the clients’ cultural and emotional experiences in relationship to their traumatization. As verified by the clients in clinical interviews, the contemplative sharing of therapist-made artwork created a visual empathic dialogue that supplemented and, in some instances, replaced verbal therapeutic dialogue. The outcomes reflected in this book demonstrate a paradigmatic shift from typical uses of therapist art to process the therapist’s experiences with clients to the application of therapist art as an intervention that may facilitate a healing intersubjective space between clients and therapist.
