Working with poverty, deprivation, and community conflict

The reality of poverty and deprivation extends across the globe, often to an extend where it creates communities in despair, where the tension and violence amongst its individuals is palpable and the emotional suffering is passed over from generation to generation.  This is the reality of a small community in Glasgow, the city with the lowest life expectancy in West Europe.  In this presentation, we discussed the novice and long-lasting effects of children growing in communities impacted by poverty and deprivation, we examined the role of health professionals in creating safe spaces and communities where children can grow embracing hope and opportunities. By Marcela Andrade del Corro, lecturer in art psychotherapy.
