Tucknott-Cohen, Tisah; Ehresman, Crystal
Art Therapy: Journal of the American Art Therapy Association, v33 n1 p41-45 2016
This article describes the healing benefits of art therapy for an individual with dementia of the Alzheimer's type. In this clinical case description, a woman diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease received individual art therapy for 17 weeks. The treatment concerns that arose, altered view of reality, agitation, and retrogenesis provide insight on the use of art in dementia care for increasing the individual's overall quality of life.
