Journal of Museum Education, v42 n4 p345-353 2017
"Sharing the Douglas/Sharing the Museum," a collaboration program of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA), the Douglas Mental Health Institute and the Department of Creative Arts Therapies at Concordia University, serves patients from the Eating Disorder Unit of the Douglas. Participants eat lunch at the museum and look at, talk about, and make art with a museum educator and certified art therapist at the MMFA. This article explores the challenges and best practices of working with people who are undergoing treatment for eating disorders and explores the roles museum education and art therapy can play in such a collaborative, multiple-visit program.
