Piece Work: Fabric Collage as a Neurodevelopmental Approach to Trauma Treatment
Homer, Eliza S.
Art Therapy: Journal of the American Art Therapy Association, v32 n1 p20-26 2015
This article describes the use of collaborative fabric collage based on a neurodevelopmental adaptation for an adult who was being treated for trauma. The case demonstrates the value of thinking about neurodevelopmental factors when creating art therapy interventions. A biologically respectful treatment that offers relational, relevant, repetitive, rewarding, and rhythmic activities may help ameliorate trauma by activating the limbic system and incorporating brainstem and midbrain stimulation.
