Video: Trauma therapy through the arts: Meet founder of The Red Pencil

The Red Pencil helps people dealing with trauma heal and grow through the creative process of creating art across the mediums of drawing, music and movement and dance.

Correction in the video: The Post incorrectly stated that Cambodia is one of 24 countries around the globe that The Red Pencil works in, and one of their main missions is to combat PTSD displayed in elderly people from the Khmer Rouge era. In fact, Cambodia is one of the 24 countries in which The Red Pencil works. The organization has conducted missions in the country since 2012 and they have largely focused on children and women who are victims of human rights abuse such as human trafficking, gender-based violence and sexual exploitation.
