Mask Therapy can help kids and adults give a “face” to their invisible or hidden feelings. It helped process traumatic experience through therapy. One symptom of PTSD is remembering the traumatic experience over and over again. Through neuroimaging or brain-mapping, scientists discovered that the area of the brain that manages speech and languages can shut down traumatic/speechless terror.
Traumatic experiences can cause people to distance or isolate themselves from others because of feelings of shame. Physical wounds heal over time, invisible wounds can exist unresolved for years. The areas of the brain where traumatic wounds and feelings are stored is also same space where healing occurs. Art therapy can help bridge these gaps.
Mask Making helps you create a picture that represents your experiences.
Give your feelings a “face”. This workshop is for everyone, specially those who are dealing with big feelings like depression, anxiety, anger or fear, making masks can help create a visual for a feeling you are trying to understand.
This class can help lower stress and help clients tell stories!
Yes, it’s KID-FRIENDLY! When a child has a safe space to create this art, process their feelings, and tell their stories, they have an opportunity to “re-fill their cup”, it is this chance to process feelings that can help a child and family cope with trauma and life’s many challenges.
