Taking another step forward, moving towards Trauma Support to the off springs of the survivor families, for the first time we successfully conducted a workshop from the 11th- 13th August 2014 at the National Seminary Philosophate Ampitiya Kandy for the children of the trauma victims
“Now I am more anxious than before and I find to handle difficult situations”
“After my father was tortured I am afraid to go along, even to go the school my mother accompanies me”
“My relationship with others is disturbed. I find difficult to face them and tend to avoid those whom I knew before the traumatic incident of my father”
“When I meet those who killed my father I get an uncontrollable impulse to harm them and kill them”
The Art Therapy sessions touching the pre- trauma scenario and slowly moved to trauma story and the post trauma situation covering the whole life span of children. At in between sessions for the first time the children freely expressed their pain and the struggle that they go through with the parents who were tortured and suffer with trauma. Trauma healing exercises were introduced to release the pain and bring them to a relaxed mood.
