Abstract

In May 2015, Ms. Hebert & Dr. Gibson received $1,483.00 from Winthrop University's Research Council to fund the research project, Examining Assisted Living Residents’ Participation in a Group-Based Art Therapy Program. The aim of the project was to examine an eight session art therapy program for aging adults residing in assisted living. Further, the project aimed to offer a group-based art therapy program to residents in a local assisted living and determine what impact (if any) the art therapy had on the residents’ sense of community among residential peers, psychological well-being, quality-of-life, and sense of identity in the assisted living setting.
