Bernice Lin Xiangting
Group art therapy for dementia patients
From March 2020
The Art Therapy Toolkit is adapted from Rippling Conversations. The toolkit is designed as a new creative tool for patients to express themselves, and for the facilitator to gain a better understanding of their patients during group art therapy sessions. Through the process, the toolkit would also assist in improving communication and fostering group dynamics. A pilot study was conducted recently at a residential care facility.
