After the Outrage [electronic resource]: Violence, Trauma, and Recovery

Ampersand Film & Video Tape Productions
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Violence, regardless of scale or setting, leaves a trail of emotional and psychological damage. And virtually everyone caught in its wake experiences the same inescapable pattern of suffering. But how powerful is the stranglehold of post-traumatic stress disorder? Is there a set of guiding principles emerging from studies of PTSD, a common pathway that trauma patients can follow to rediscover peace of mind? Presenting stories from Palestine, France, and Quebec, this program follows therapists working to treat diverse yet often comparable trauma cases-from children abused by family members to a survivor of the Rwandan genocide. The result: a global perspective on the effort to decode and transcend the effects of horrific violence. Strategies drawn from art and music therapy as well as more conventional forms of treatment and analysis are included.
