8:30 AM—8:45 AM Building an Arts in Health Program in a Major Medical Center
This session shares the experience of building an arts in health program in a major medical center over a 30-year career. Lessons learned will be explained including assessing the needs of the patients and staff, self-care in an extremely intense setting, creating boundaries, understanding the needs of the patients and staff, and understanding the politics of an institution while recognizing the need for clinical support.
8:45 AM—9:00 AM Artful Healing: Supporting Life Transitions Using Digital Storytelling and Music
When children and families are in a time of significant change, stress, transition, joy, or pain, they are often searching for ways to make meaning of and process their experience. Through art, patients are able to regain control of their story and express themselves in a humanistic way. We will share case studies demonstrating the process of supporting an individual through a life event and how this can be coordinated in an inpatient medical setting.
1. Participants will be able to summarize the benefit of creative arts therapies as a tool for coping support and feel confident in disseminating this knowledge at their home facility
