The Alliance against “Anxiety” – Acknowledging skills and knowledge for those who are suffering from anxiety by using art in narrative practice by Rebecca Wong

This video presents ways of using art and narrative practice for children and youth who are facing ‘Anxiety’.  Through art exercises young people have a chance to externalize and re-author their anxiety stories. Rebecca (commonly known as Caca) collected young people’s insider knowledge, deconstructed social discourses through the use of outsider witnesses; created collective documentation; and convened definitional ceremonies. Peers and Parents were then invited to join an Alliance. Caca would like to acknowledge the participants who agreed to share their stories in this presentation. 

Rebecca Wong is currently working as a counsellor in a social service agency in Hong Kong. She mainly works with children and youth who are experiencing mental health issues and developmental crises as well as their parents. As a practitioner, she has enthusiasm for developing narrative ideas in community work.
