StandUp-SpeakOut of North Carolina (SUSO-NC) was founded on the belief
that every child has a right to feel safe, free from fear, violence, and all
forms of abuse. SUSO-NC seeks to decrease the cycle of abuse by providing
holistic therapeutic services for children and families who are witnesses
and victims of domestic violence and/or sexual abuse. We believe through
holistic art therapeutic programming, advocacy, education, leadership, and
prevention we begin the process of breaking violent barriers and creating a
world of people free from the psychological and physical cycles of abuse.
At SUSO we focus on empowering the “whole person” the “whole family”to
enable them to dream, believe, and encourage them to succeed. Embracing
Art, Wellness, and Healing with Survivors is an interactive workshop
designed to take participants on a journey to explore the power of using art
and wellness as a component of a survivors healing journey. Explore holistic
approaches, wellness and resiliency tools, and implement and practice the
tools in this interactive session. Learn positive practices when working with
survivors, specifically black and brown families.
