Effects of Art Therapy on Distress Levels of Adults with Cancer: A Proxy Pretest Study
Glinzak, Leara
Art Therapy: Journal of the American Art Therapy Association, v33 n1 p27-34 2016
This study identified decreased distress after art therapy in a proxy pretest study with a convenience sample of 73 patients being treated for cancer. Art therapy outcomes from 4 settings (oncology unit, infusion clinic, individual sessions, and open studio) were measured via the self-report Distress Thermometer, which was collected as part of an ongoing hospital evaluation of the art therapy program. Results indicated decreased patient distress following art therapy, and the art therapy open studio showed the largest mean decrease for stress post-art therapy.
