Inspired by a symposium we hosted earlier this year called “Beyond Compassion: Caring for Women with a History of Trauma,” and driven to spread lessons learned through love and art, we created this manifesto for you.
Watch this Google+ Hangout on Air as we talk about the way forward towards healing and supporting resiliency in the women we care for.
Film description: “Driven by the desire for custody of their children, five mothers struggle to overcome substance use disorders in a gender-responsive treatment program. Their intimate story reveals experiences with domestic violence, [sex work], incarceration and complex intergenerational relations. On Life’s Terms: Mothers in Recovery interweaves the women’s three-year journey to self-sufficiency and newfound pride with drug laws that impact mother and child, and will inspire hope for recovery.”
