The Role of Art in Healing

Thursday, April 9, 2009The Role of Art in Healing

The idea that art can play a role healing shouldn’t be all that surprising. Any caregiver who's ever put crayons in front a sad or hurt kid understands there's something soothing about creativity. For some, it's easier to express frightening thoughts about illness or injury through art than in words. For others, art becomes a refuge - something to immerse yourself in so you forget your physical problems. This Thursday we'll meet art therapists who work with patients experiencing illness, and a woman who is currently exhibiting art she created during her treatment for cancer, in a conversation about the role art can play in healing.
