Art Therapy for Survivors of Sexual Abuse/Assault


fullsizeoutput 160

Art Access has teamed up with Jill Johnson, an MAAT certified art therapist, to offer survivors of sexual assault a safe and creative forum to express their experiences, emotions and trauma.

Based on the Open Studio Project, founded in Chicago, participants will explore various art mediums individually and through a collective group experience. Participants will learn about intention, art-making and witness writing. This is an opportunity for previous participants to continue their self exploration or for new participants to try out this unique form of therapy.

Art therapist Jill Johnson uses the expressive arts to assist clients in their personal and/or professional journey toward healing, growth, awareness and/or creative spirit.

Johnson works in a holistic fashion, offering a combination of expressive therapies with traditional talk therapy, creative exploration, outdoor and narrative therapies. Her goal is to provide a safe space to explore and assist clients in discovering their voice and expressive nature.
