The intent of this presentation is to share case examples of various photos and films related therapeutic projects that have been incorporated with a palliative population at Sunnybrook Hospital. From there, I will share resources, ideas, and tips in order for others who are interested to explore with their patients and clients.
Ana Seara is a registered psychotherapist, registered art therapist and clinical art therapy supervisor at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Hospital, Veterans Centre. She has worked there for over 18 years, with both veteran and palliative care populations. Primarily, Ana uses photography and video in her art therapy work with these populations. Ana is currently studying Nalanda Miksang Contemplative photography, and looks forward to incorporating these principles into her future work with patients, family members, and students.
