Locked Inside Us
Locked Inside Us is a Public Service Announcement / micro-short film geared towards middle school through college students and is about the “little t” traumas we keep inside us that affect our lives moving forward.
Bound was created by Healing TREE Artist Advocate Samantha Scaffidi and produced by Voyager Studios LLC in association with SLMBR PRTY. It answers the important question of why people who are victims of abuse often feel a powerful attachment to those who have abused them. Furthermore, it points towards resources that emphasize trauma’s impact on the brain and allow for effective treatment (apart from the typical cognitive approach that doesn’t engage the survival part of the brain that is impacted during abuse) that leads to breaking the cycle and finding healing.

A workshop for high schoolers, college students and community members on the most insidious red flags of abuse and trauma built around our short film Silk.
Our short film Silk, and accompanying workshop with guided discussion, illustrate, educate on and explore the most insidious forms of abuse and trauma. Silk stars mainstream talent and engages high schoolers, college students and community members to have an open conversation about these important but often undiscussed topics. Our pre and post engagement assessments ensure that folks walk away far better equipped to heal from the aftermath of what too many may have faced and to prevent themselves and others from being victimized by, or perpetrating, abusive situations in the future.
If you share our vision of a society in which everyone has the ability to heal from trauma and abuse ceases, contact us to get involved today.
