Our Expressive Arts Therapist is available to offer painting, drawing, movement, drama, music, poetry and storytelling. Unique to our program in Pediatrics is the crafting of a “Healing Sock Creature.” This involves using hospital materials to co-create a loveable transitional object helping transform a child’s experience of acute stress into one of empowerment.
Guided Imagery is an interactive technique with the patient providing an inner resource for relaxation, prepare for surgery, reduce stress, ease fears, and improve coping skills and provides shorter hospital stay.

- Painting and Drawing
