Set of TakeCare Cards
with TakeCare Cards
Gina Gibney Dance Inc
Working with survivors of domestic abuse is complex. Survivors have been stripped of their ability to make choices and decisions, and are often alienated from and ashamed of their physicality. Movement has been proven to be an important factor in the recovery of domestic violence survivors and their return to a more normal way of life. But, ironically, in most domestic violence shelters and support groups, little attention is paid to the body and its important role in the recovery process.
This gift will provide the funds to print an entire set of TakeCare cards for the participants of a Domestic Violence workshop. Each TakeCare Card is personally designed and developed by a member of GGD. It offers words of relaxation and a description of an exercise from the workshop or similar to ideas and exercises presented in the workshop that will calm down the body and mind and offer self-reassurance.
