The Power of ART . . . Again !!!

Art helps aboriginal children express pain

" . . . Each piece represents a unique perspective of pain that many of the young aboriginal artists may not have been able to express to a medical practitioner.

'Aboriginal children, I think, express pain very differently,' said John R. Sylliboy, community research project co-ordinator for the Aborignal Children's Hut and Healing initiative.

A lot of can be related to communication. A lot of it is because they are stoic around pain but they are also educated to not express pain so freely . . . "



Art That Counts
