A Space for Dialogue 100
Experiencing trauma can change our biochemistry and behavior, producing a disease called PTSD. Contemporary neuroscience research suggests that through the making of art, individuals can recalibrate their biochemistry and cure their symptoms. "The Soul has Bandaged Moments" encourages three conversations: challenging the definition of trauma, exploring trauma as a physiological disease, and proposing different mechanisms of healing.
