Artist Arla Patch discusses intergenerational trauma and epistemicide. Arla began using art as a tool for personal healing and transformation from trauma, and has since used arts to work with incarcerated women, at risk teens, women with breast cancer, and adolescent male addicts and alcoholics. She has authored two books, A Body Story and Finding Ground: Girls and Women in Recovery. During this talk, Arla shared the modalities that she has developed and the brain research that supports its effectiveness: “Bringing the Shadow to Light,” “Second Skin” and “Nature Fusion.”
