Dear 9/11 First Responders:

Free Art Therapy Group will begin again soon on Saturdays from 1:00pm-2:20PM and will run for 8 weeks cycles. The groups is held downtown Manhattan at New York University.

This group is specifically designed for First Responders and Rescue Workers in efforts to provide a supportive environment and alternative means through art making and processing to promote a sense of control and release from the residual experiences relating to the events of September 11, 2001. This has been an on-going group that will begin a third cycle for participants that continue to experience the affects both physically and emotionally.

The visual and kinesthetic nature surrounding the trauma of 9/11 can be difficult to process verbally. It is the belief that the use of art can help to externalize these flooding traumatic experiences via the multi-sensory and visceral qualities of the art making experience. This experience can help to recognize personal strengths, build coping skills, while gaining a sense of mastery over art materials and emotional content externalized during the art making process. Meeting weekly with one another, participants can gain in the shared experience of using the cathartic qualities of art making, gain insight and self awareness, as well as, gain a reprieve from their mental, physical, and economical stresses.

See flyer below.

Please contact me with any further questions.

Thanking you,

Ailish Coughlan
Licensed Creative Art Therapist
