  • Butterfly Creations Symbolize Journey from Victim to Survivor

As part of their healing process, domestic violence victims and children who have witnessed family violence recently participated in art therapy sessions at YWCA Central Alabama. They created beautiful butterflies to symbolize their transformation from victims to survivors.
Women who attend the YW’s weekly support groups made origami butterflies and wrote or drew a picture of a dream, want, need, wish or prayer before folding the paper into a butterfly shape. “The goal is to help them take an old hurt or pain and turn it into a new goal or sense of peace,” said Fanicy Sears, counselor at the YWCA.
