Healing Through Art

This group provides opportunities for healing through self-expression by giving voice to losses and fears and offering an active approach to integrating the experience of illness into the self.

Making art can be a restorative process that assists in the cancer journey. Members of the “Healing Through Art group” at the Center created this artwork. This group is currently facilitated by Esther Dreifuss-Kattan, PhD, ATR.

The images are a sampling of the work produced in the group over many years. The “Art Task” describes the assignment that was given to the group by the facilitator of the group, an art therapist. Please note the “patient/artist” is not identified. We have used a set of initials to identify the work so that viewers will know which pieces the same individuals created.
