Title: The embodied response: art therapy with female adolescents who have experienced complex trauma
Synopsis:

The work of therapists requires them to continually regulate both psychologically and physiologically to empathize and attune to their clients. This process with the lack of awareness and sufficient self-care may impact professionals negatively. This qualitative, art-based method of study follows the author’s use of media art as a
response to embodied experiences while working with female adolescents, who have experienced complex trauma. With the knowledge of traumatic memories being implicit and communicated non-verbally, this study discusses the topic of countertransference, mirror neurons and affect attunement. Viewing the body as a site
of knowledge, the study uncovers how media art in the form of a video through its digital techniques worked in both containing and processing implicit knowledge that provided insight into the therapeutic process. This paper aims to contribute to the
emerging body of literature on embodiment in the field of art therapy and the use of digital media in response art.
