In recent years there has been increased interest in the relationship between art and healing in the medical world. More than three hundred professional organizations are researching, documenting, and systematizing how engagement with the creative processes impacts the development of disease and the likelihood of recovery.
The mission of the Foundation is to use its position as a “bridge” to create and expand general awareness about art and healing, to bring forward through research and related explorations critical knowledge about art and healing and the relationship between them, and to help make this knowledge available at the individual and community level.
In this video, Jason tells his story of pain, trauma and denial and reveals the road to healing through an unlikely source – Art Therapy.
