This weeks #Otalk is on the topic of “the creative arts within OT” and will be hosted by Corinna Keaney (@CKeaneyOTservices, Marie Baistow (@MrsBaistow) and Orla Hughes (@OrlaTheOT).
Here is what they had to say…
Corinna, Marie, and Orla are hosting this week’s OTalk exploring how the creative arts are used in occupational therapy practice. They have personal and professional experience of seeing how occupations such as music, art, drama, dance, creative writing (the list goes on) can boost people’s physical and mental well-being. As a result, this OTalk would aim to discuss and evaluate how creative arts are currently being used in occupational therapy practice. We hope you can join the discussion and share your experiences.
Questions that will be discussed:
- What’s your favourite work of art? It can be a song, a painting, a dance, a film, etc… Please share it in the comments and tell us why it’s your favourite.
- What are the benefits of the creative arts as a therapeutic tool?
- What are your experiences of using the creative arts in occupational therapy practice?
- What are the challenges of using creative arts in practice?
- Do you feel occupational therapy and the creative arts is evidence based practice? Link any interesting research you’ve read around the topic.
Chat hosted by Corinna Keaney (@CKeaneyOTservices, Marie Baistow (@MrsBaistow) and Orla Hughes (@OrlaTheOT).
