A Conversation with Sharon Strouse the Author of Artful Grief: A Diary of Healing  

The creative process of healing from trauma - and how important this modality is for survivors -

Awakening....at the Refuge

Art Therapy, Psychotherapy,  and Intuitive Healing
Collage...at the Refuge and Soul gatherings...at the Refuge/ Intuitive Development Circle.

From Sharon:     Artful Grief:  A Diary of Healing is about the seven year period after my daughter’s suicide, during which I created a series of eighty-three collages. It is the story of my understanding of myself, for my child’s death stripped me of my identity as a human being, a mother and an art therapist.  It is also my daughter Kristin’s story, and the struggle she lost due to a misdiagnosed bipolar illness. The narrative unfolds with the phone call I received in the middle of the night from the New York City police, telling me that Kristin had “fallen” to her death.  Through my journal entries, written to Kristin, the reader enters my intimate lamentations for my child.
