Dr. Noah Hass-Cohen will show case over a decade of her pain and trauma drawing research. Empirical and case studies and memory reconsolidation underpinnings will be reviewed. The drawing protocol has three or four sequenced prompts. Participants may try out these prompts with paper and markers.
The trauma and pain drawing protocols demonstrated significant increases in positive resiliency-based experiences and decreased negative ones, as well as generalized favorable follow up outcomes (Hass-Cohen et al., 2018; 2021). Results from participation in online or in versions of the person pain study or before and or during the first three months of COVID-19 pandemic, did not show significant differences. A year later, one participant reported no need for medication (Hass-Cohen et al., 2023). Art making was reported as critical for changes in the meaning of pain experience over time. The showcased imagery will provide some remarkable and striking drawing responses and clinical insights.
