The Cancer Center's Art Therapy Program provides a therapeutic outlet for patients and their families utilizing art materials as a form of expression.A board certified art therapist guides individuals in the creative process providing a wide assortment art supplies and projects. Research has proven that art making has a positive impact on pain management, depression, anxiety, and stress reduction. For centuries, art has served as a healing tool, fostering self-awareness and coping skills.
Art therapy is available at no charge in individual, family and group settings to any interested patient or family member, and the Cancer Center provides not only the know-how and guidance (no previous art experience is necessary), but the materials as well.
