全面關顧身心的模式

我們借鑒海外服務模式和經驗,推行先導的治療服務,針對兒童/青少年因創傷所引致的身體和心理障礙,舒緩它們所帶來的影響。

創傷經歷是直接影響感官層面,並會儲存該創傷為隱含記憶;「身體會記憶」這概念近年已得到廣泛認同和支持 (Rothschild, 2000; van der Kolk, 2006; Levine, 2008)。經歷創傷的人在接觸影像、感覺及衝動時,有時會抽離於對事件的理性認知了解。要幫助受心理創傷困擾的兒童/青少年,我們明白必須先在感官層面幫助他們,然後再在認知層面來理解他們的經驗。創意介入之所以成為一種有效的手法,是因為它可以讓孩子們在感官的層面開始接受治療。

很多時候,兒童縱使在創傷事件發生後很長的時間仍會有不同的生理反應,而這種生理反應往往難於言喻,故此談話治療以外的介入可有助他們表達。能體驗和表達創傷事件的感覺對康復過程十分重要,所以近來表達性藝術的元素更多地融入創傷後壓力症的治療中(Schiraldi, 2009)。我們的治療計劃不是單單針對症狀,而是更著重創傷中帶來的心理困擾如:害怕、恐懼、擔心、傷心、憤怒、報復、問責、無力、缺乏安全感和過份認同「受害者」的角色。我們會透過藝術治療,遊戲與沙箱治療、舞動治療,音樂治療和戲劇治療等作為介入手法,為有受創經驗的兒童/青少年提供更全面的服務。

A Holistic Working Approach for both body and mind

Taking reference from overseas service models and experiences, this pilot treatment service will address somatic and psychological disturbances of trauma towards the child/youth, resolve their impacts and attend to healing of both body and mind.

In more recent years, the concept of “body remembers” and that trauma is experienced at a sensory level and stored as an implicit memory, and thus it is truly a sensory experience is widely supported (Rothschild, 2000; van der Kolk, 2006; Levine, 2008). When individuals with traumatic experiences encounter images, sensations and impulses, sometimes they will detach themselves on a cognitive level, which is the understanding of what is happening. In order to help the children with traumatic experiences, we now understand that we must help them on the sensory level before their experiences can be understood on a cognitive level. Creative intervention thus becomes an effective approach as it allows children to work on the sensory-implicit level.

To understand the physiological responses that continue to be triggered long after the traumatic event and responses that circumvent language and rational understanding, it is crucial to consider other interventions beyond talking therapies. Since experiencing and expressing traumatic material is very important to recovery, the expressive arts are being increasingly incorporated into PTSD treatment plans (Schiraldi, 2009). Our Project highlights treatment focusing on trauma themes: fear, terror, worry, hurt, anger, revenge, accountability, powerlessness, absence of safety and being a person verses a victim, rather than on symptoms treatment. Our service includes interventions such as art therapy, play and sand-tray therapy, dance & movement therapy, music therapy and drama therapy.
