ART THERAPY FOR CHILDREN WITH CANCER IN MONTREAL
Studies have shown that art therapy as well as play therapy with children with cancer have positive effects on their mood, as they alleviate fear and enhance quality of social life. Creativity, spontaneity, and freedom that come with art activities allow children with cancer to destroy, create, and recreate negative experiences that are associated with their illness. Researchers believe that this process is not only healing in nature but also ease acceptance of the illness and increase the tolerance for unexpectedness. Moreover, imagination, which is inherent in art activities, helps children with cancer to turn impossible to possible, regain the lost control of their life, and increase their psychological well-being.
