PRAISE FOR THE DISASTER SHOCK ARTS & RECOVERY TEAM
"The Disastershock Arts & Recovery series offers illuminating and deeply felt presentations, which show
why expressive arts therapies generate healing for both individual trauma and community catastrophes."
Dr. Karen Seeley, Ph.D., LCSW
Psychotherapist, Lecturer in Anthropology, Columbia University
"The Disastershock Reporter's Notebook is such a necessary resource in the 21st century. When you think about all the multiple traumas that cut across cultures and regions - mass shootings, natural disasters, pandemics - it becomes clear that people need holistic approaches to access recovery and resilience. These expressive arts remind survivors that they have value and that engaging in things like music therapy, dance, and holistic arts can reconnect them to communities to which trauma may have convinced them they no longer belong. I plan to start including this in my recommendations to clients who have experienced trauma." Kip Thompson, Ph.D., Clinical-Community Psychologist, CEO of Thompson Psychological Services, PLLC
