At Iona, we believe in the therapeutic benefits of art therapy. Our Wellness & Arts Center incorporates group and individual art studio sessions into our daily programming. Led by our art therapists, who are trained in counseling and psychotherapy, these sessions provide opportunities for creative expression and non-verbal communication. This can be particularly important for those participants beginning to lose their verbal skills.
In this clip, hear from participants, caregivers, and our art therapist on how art therapy has supported positive aging. In our Wellness & Arts Center, we strive to engage all of our participants with creative outlets and moments for reflection. Watch how we do it.
