"Walkabout: Looking In, Looking Out": A Mindfulness-Based Art Therapy Program
Peterson, Caroline
Art Therapy: Journal of the American Art Therapy Association, v32 n2 p78-82 2015
This brief report describes a mindfulness-based art therapy (MBAT) intervention, "Walkabout: Looking In, Looking Out," which was piloted in 2010 and has since been offered at the Abramson Cancer Center at Pennsylvania Hospital in Philadelphia. The author adapted the original MBAT intervention using a walkabout conceptual model, which was informed by participants' art productions and research outcomes. These changes were intended to generate a more accessible program by centering the learning experience more readily within each participant's evolving frame of reference. Walkabout integrates mindful walks outside with participants' use of digital photography combined with constructing collages from the photographs, within an experiential framework of mindfulness and creativity.
