Power of Art
We have partnered with Lynne Barletta, using The Power of Art III curriculum. Using right-side of the brain drawing, this is a 9 week program that shows remarkable improvement with PTSD! The program has proven to be successful with the sex trafficked victim. Measurable data has been collected in a pilot program in Stuart, Florida with the local Department of Juvenile Justice. Our current work in Memphis indicate similar results as the participants range in age from 15 to 62. We are still working to get the curriculum inside the Juvenile justice System here in the Memphis area.

"21 Day Brain Detox"
After completion of the 9 week art program, our goal is to promote healthy opportunities for those affected by trauma. The former victim, now Restored, will learn new thought patterns to overcome toxic thinking. With access to the right resources, people can become empowered by their own abilities and gain the confidence to fulfill their potential.
