ROOM 704

Medical Art Therapy with Pediatric Patients: Healing Process, Image, & Story
Lucy Barbera, PhD, LCAT

Children who live with chronic and life-threatening medical conditions involving lengthy and repeated hospitalizations have unique therapeutic needs. Art therapy can provide dynamic opportunities for pediatric patients to develop personal imagery that strengthens and empowers them to be active participants in their own healing process. Strategies for eliciting such personal healing imagery will be presented, with the opportunity to engage with triptych and mask making first hand for future professional application.

Art & Music Therapies: Collaboration in a Hospital Setting
Kendra Carlson, MAAT, ATR
Regina Moreno, MT-BC

Collaboration between expressive arts modalities is beneficial when structured so that each discipline mutually enhances the other. Through anecdotal reports, observations, initial quantitative research from art and music therapy collaborations and interactive activities, this session will highlight strategies for enhancing expressive arts collaboration in follow-up referral, individual, and group collaborative work with inpatients, siblings, and caregivers within a pediatric hospital setting. Discussion will include collaboration as workplace mission, as well as benefits and challenges to patients/participants and therapists.
