Common Threads: Stories of Life After Trauma (2010) - 54 minutes
Common Threads: Stories of Life After Trauma at Amazon.com

A documentary by Amber Ward based on Common Threads and a companion to Cultivating Hope with Abuse Survivors, both written by Robillard and Duclos.

Listen closely as Connie Robillard and Marcel Duclos speak the secrets of the sexual abuse that was kept from their families for more than half a century. Revealing and evocative this film takes you beyond these two lives, to the familiar life themes observed in your students, clients, family members or even your own story. As therapists they specialize in the treatment of trauma; they are no strangers to the residual effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences, Developmental Trauma and Domestic Violence. Amber Ward directs this feature-length documentary. It tells a recognizable story of healing, helping others, overcoming obstacles, and it invites the viewer to a compassionate understanding of the long-term work of unburdening and reintegrating the fragmented parts of self.

This is a companion film to the book Cultivating Hope With Abuse Survivors by Connie Robillard & Marcel A. Duclos. The book and film together provide a teaching packet for workshops, college classes, community education or individual use. The book contains experiential exercises for discussion, group work or for healing and recovery from abuse.

"This film transports us into the inner world of child abuse and its profound effect on body and mind. Common Threads is a unique, poetic and sensitive journey."

"An excellent resource resource for survivors, therapists, teachers and anyone who wants to understand the issues associated with child abuse."
