TOPIC: THINGS THEY CARRY – WRITING FOR HEALING
The Things They Carry Project was created to offer frontline healthcare workers the opportunity to process the difficult, and at times, traumatic experiences of working during the pandemic. TTC expanded to offer groups for young women in Bangladesh, many of whom are refugees, coming from worlds of trauma, with loss, pain and violence. Our goal is to offer these women a small community to connect with and help them strengthen their resilience and build their inner resources. Both projects offer support and writing prompts, allowing participants to explore their experiences, share their writing, listen, and respond to each other. Sharing stories and traumas, putting words to feelings, can hasten healing by breaking through the isolation that often accompanies pain. This workshop will offer participants an understanding of the ways psychoanalytic thinking can be used to help people in hard to reach communities-even globally-providing support and skills they can carry with them. We will explore the complexity of working overseas, with different languages and culture.
