Healing from the effects of domestic abuse involves both physical and emotional recovery, says Leona Ulrich of the Lakes Crisis & Resource Center in Detroit Lakes.


"A big part of domestic violence survival is the healing aspect -- healing from the abuse and moving forward in a more positive direction," she added.

"The arts is one way to channel some of those emotions and feelings creatively, rather than using them in more destructive ways."
