Lunch and Learn Presents: Creative Art Therapies
Thursday, July 11, 2013 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM (PDT)
Creative art therapies (CAT) use expressive art forms to relax the body and mind and help relieve stress. VCU Massey Cancer Center invites you to join P. Muzi Branch, director of cultural programs at VCU Medical Center, at our Stony Point location to learn about the benefits of CATs. Participants will learn about different types of CATs, including art therapy, dance therapy, drama therapy, music therapy and writing therapy, work to remove percieved barries to participating in CATs, and discuss what they learned with their fellow participants and instructor over lunch.
