    NorCATA 2022 ABM & Winter Workshop


    Art Therapy for Psychiatric Patients in a Hospital Setting during COVID-19

    with 

    Jee Hyun Kim, PhD, ATR-BC, LCAT

    January 30th, 2022

    Annual Business Meeting    11:00-12:00 pm PT

    Workshop with Jee Hyun Kim    1:00-3:00 pm PT

     

    Workshop Description

    The COVID-19 pandemic has had devastating effects on health worldwide and significant impacts on mental and emotional health (Jolly, Batchelder, & Baweja, 2020; Petzold et al., 2020). First, this presentation will explore the main goals of short-term psychiatric treatments in a hospital setting. The presenter will explain how therapeutic programs have implemented procedures for giving people a sense of safety in their preparation for sessions, in the types of programs they offered, in their handling of art materials, and in the size of groups during the pandemic. The presentation will feature the difficulty that programs experienced in adjusting to the new procedures from the beginning of the pandemic. 

    Additionally, the art therapy case vignettes for the psychiatric patients will present how they were able to safely revisit their past traumatic experiences in ways that helped shed light on the source of their fear and anxiety, where they were able to acknowledge and work through their inner wounds and traumatic experiences. This presentation will illustrate how a psychodynamic art therapy approach with open-ended interventions helped individuals increase self-awareness and improve within their treatment by transforming their painful memories into blissful moments as a process of sublimation (Kramer, 2017).  The symbolic expressions through art in an open-ended and therapeutic setting allowed them to achieve dramatic experiences which gave them a sense of self-worth in the limited circumstance.
