“THE KING AND his DOG, WHO WAS NAMED ‘DONKEY’ AND THOUGHT HE WAS A LION,” mixed media

This exhibition concludes a one-year program of expressive therapy with women in a domestic violence shelter. The participant mothers guided their children in the process of making their own stories. Together they identified patterns of perceptions and “scares” of past violent events. In doing so, they also honor the courage, creativity, humor and problem solutions that these stories convey.
