A Community Art Therapy Group for Adults with Chronic Pain
O'Neill, Aimee; Moss, Hilary
Art Therapy: Journal of the American Art Therapy Association, v32 n4 p158-167 2015
This paper describes a community art therapy group for people living with chronic pain. Nine adults were offered 12 weekly group art therapy sessions that included art therapy activities such as guided imagery focusing on body scans followed by art responses and artistic expressions of the pain experience. This pilot group art therapy program is original in offering a short-term, focused art therapy group to support people living with chronic pain. This model of art therapy is replicable and may be of use to practitioners working with people living with chronic pain conditions.
