MA Research 1

 

Collection of images created as part of a reflective piece during MA research 'GIVING VOICE, HEALING TRAUMA: Exploring the Usefulness of Art Therapy with Refugee Children.'  September, 2017. 


"...the drawings which include elements of yellow, all individually represent the four themes discovered that serve beneficial to refugee children...these images tie together as they all appear to be supported and contained with the yellow surroundings; reflecting quite similarly how art therapy collectively provides refugee children with a safe space to heal, revisit trauma and discover new-self."

"...the cicular image stands separately, as the colours and marks converse. The black marks on the image bring a sense of negativity and turbulence as the marks appear to attack the centre, reflecting quite similarly how refugees’ face many ordeals and difficulties in today’s society. In contrast, the yellow brings a sense of enlightenment and movement as it amplifies from the centre echoing quite closely the discovery of the first theme, which gives refugee children a voice to express and share their story."
