RESEARCH AND RESOURCES

Research and Resources are imperative in the Social Work field. I want to make sure that I keep up to date with my cause.

Research

“Anti-Oppressive theory is not so much a single theory but rather a cluster of theories that share the goal of understanding and responding to oppressive social conditions and relationships”.

“Creative art therapy in its many forms offers a way to reach clients and validate their experiences by allowing them to “tell their stories” in powerful ways”.

“Studies also show that creating art stimulates the release of dopamine. This chemical is released when we do something pleasurable, and it basically makes us feel happier. Increased levels of this feel-good neurotransmitter can be very helpful if you are battling anxiety or depression”.
