Magee Rehabilitation Hospital Art Therapist Lori Tiberi talks about art therapy, working with patients with physical and cognitive disabilities, and gives us a sneak peek at the 2012 Art Therapy Calendar featuring patient art work in this short video.


Art therapy is a mental health profession that uses the creative process of art making to improve and enhance the physical, mental and emotional well-being of individuals of all ages. Art therapy integrates the fields of human development, visual art (drawing, painting, sculpture, and other art forms), and the creative process with models of counseling and psychotherapy. Art therapy is used to assess and treat anxiety, depression, social and emotional difficulties related to disability and illness; trauma and loss; physical, cognitive and neurological problems. Art therapy services at Magee include individual and group therapy sessions as well as sessions working together with occupational, physical, speech, and recreational therapies.


Art therapy at Magee includes drawing, painting, sculpture, clay modeling, and a variety of other creative outlets. The focus of art therapy within a physical rehabilitation hospital is to work with individuals through creating artwork as an addition to existing care, in an effort to further promote successful rehabilitation.
