Challenge

Abused women and children need to be housed in a safe location. While there they need activities that expand their expectations of a new life. Movement therapy provides tools which they may use for the rest of their lives as outlets for pain and agression. It is designed specifically for each population to aid expression through the movement. For some pain, there are no words. But we have our bodies which can tell our story.

Solution

Future skills - Deep, controlled, breathing, concentration that focuses on relaxation and co-operation, a mastery of movement and balance, confidence, self-expression and trust once learned can benefit them each day, where ever they are.

Long-Term Impact

Women and children forced to seek a safe shelter are badly wounded personalities. When they are ready to re-enter the general population they need tools so they can make better choices. Movement therapy is easy to practice each day.
