Effect of Art Production on Negative Mood and Anxiety for Adults in Treatment for Substance Abuse
Laurer, Mattye; van der Vennet, Renée
Art Therapy: Journal of the American Art Therapy Association, v32 n4 p177-183 2015
This study investigated whether art production or viewing and sorting art reproductions would be more effective in reducing negative mood and anxiety for 28 adults with substance use disorders. Participants were randomly assigned to one of two groups and completed pre- and posttest measures of negative mood and anxiety The hypothesis that art production would have a greater reduction in negative mood and anxiety was initially supported by the mean scores and t-test analyses; however, it was not supported by two of three ANOVAs, which indicated that time over treatment made a difference rather than the intervention.
