Title: The art therapist as a wounded healer: a heuristic inquiry on the clinical work with a child with complex trauma
Synopsis:

This paper explores the concept of the wounded healer and how despite its inherent existence in every individual, there is a lack of literature and dialogue on the topic, particularly in Asia. Through a psychodynamic psychotherapy framework, the author takes on a practitioner-based, qualitative research methodology that is guided by heuristic inquiry, and acknowledges her identity as a wounded healer. Having an awareness of this identity compelled her to investigate her countertransference reactions on a deeper level, and to reflect on how this impacts her role as an art therapist working with children with complex trauma. Key themes of countertransference are identified and reflected upon through a single case study, followed by a discussion of the clinical implications. Through the research, the author invites art therapists to embrace aspects of their personal selves by engaging in
heuristic research and paying greater attention to their felt senses, and to consider how this impacts their clinical work with those who are wounding.
