Luzzatto, Paola; Gabriel, Bonnie
Art Therapy: Journal of the American Art Therapy Association, v17 n4 p265-69 2000
Cancer patients who have completed medical treatment are often left with unresolved psychological issues. Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York offers a group art therapy program for cancer patients to help them regain their self-confidence and readjust their self-identity. The response of 70 participants has been positive and has helped them integrate the traumatic experience into their new identities. (Author/JDM)
