Event description
"Whenever illness is associated with loss of soul, the arts emerge spontaneously as remedies, soul medicine." Shaun McNiff

About this event

Patty Bennett, MA, will call medical student's attention to a few pieces of her artwork to provide a rich analogy of complex trauma and the healing processes that were required of her to move from victimhood to survivorship, from warrior to overcomer.

Based on her personal experiences, Patty will share how physicians listened, learned and demonstrated understanding of her complex trauma and its impact on her over-all health. Patty feels that this trauma-informed approach empowered her to reclaim her life, hopes and dreams.
