Encore Presentation: Childhood Fractured: Preventing Child Abuse through Art
In this encore presentation of episode 8 of the Chicago Psychology Podcast, Dr, Hoye speaks with Allen Vandever. Allen is a contemporary artist who founded and runs Childhood Fractured, a non-profit artist collective in the Irving Park neighborhood of Chicago, IL. Childhood Fractured educates the public about childhood sexual abuse and works toward prevention. Allen utilizes his own history of childhood abuse and his journey of recovery to turn trauma into art and narrative that transforms and heals. Allen discusses his own journey of healing, and the inception, growth and goals of Childhood Fractured. The "Little Shop," as they refer to it, also contains a coffee roasting facility, and provides free coffee, music, and a chance to have a conversation about surviving and thriving childhood sexual abuse.
