Art therapy programs at community hospitals?

  • 1.  Art therapy programs at community hospitals?

    Posted 07-30-2018 01:53 PM
    I'm seeking information on art therapy programs at community or suburban hospitals where the average length of stay may be only two to three days? (I understand that longer-stay sites such as rehab or cancer facilities have very vibrant art therapy programs where patients can take on significant/more complex projects.)

    If you have a short-stay hospital and and art therapy program, what are the main focuses and benefits? Do you have paid personnel or are they volunteers?

    A wonderful donor has expressed possible funding interest for our community hospital and I'm looking for models we might study and emulate.

    Thank you in advance for any replies!
