Using Research-based Theatre with Post-traumatic Stress Survivors

July 6, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 10:15 am

Join Dr. George Belliveau and Christina Cook for a discussion on relational learning and the therapeutic potential of using theatre as a mode of research. This session explores an arts-based research project co-developed between returning military veterans, counselling psychologists and artists. Using Research-based Theatre as a methodology, the team collaboratively created a play, Contact!Unload, which features veterans as performers sharing their stories of serving and the sometimes difficult return to civilian life. Part of the Ethics of Trauma-informed Research Webinar Series co-hosted by the UBC-V Public Humanities Hub and UVic’s Visual Storytelling and Graphic Art in Genocide and Human Rights Education project.
