This project complements research being conducted by the Trauma Healing Project, which is examining how survivors experience trauma in order to understand the mechanisms of healing and to promote healing practices to service providers and the community.

The research will be expanded to include women with disabilities who are also survivors of trauma.

“‘Finding Face’ details the controversial case of Tat Marina, who was attacked with acid in Cambodia in 1999. At 16, Marina was a rising star in Phnom Penh’s karaoke music scene. She was coerced into an abusive relationship with Cambodia’s Undersecretary of State, Svay Sitha, and subsequently doused with a liter of nitric acid—allegedly by his wife—that disfigured her face. A decade later, despite the fact that there were multiple witnesses to the crime, no charges have ever been filed in the case” (from the Finding Face website).
