Chad Love Lieberman Clarifies Artistic Therapy for Cancer Patients

1888PressRelease – Experienced NY Post artistic therapist Chad “Love” Lieberman delves into the healing and palliative properties of art for terminally ill patients.

For many years, art therapy has been widely applied in the field of medicine for its healing properties,” artistic therapist, Chad Love Lieberman explained in a session delving into alternative therapies for cancer patients.

“By exercising creativity, patients can confront and control their fear, stress, anxiety and emotional conflicts in order to allow the body to heal better. Patients suffering from cancer can express their unspoken and usually subconscious struggles with their illness and increase their self-awareness by practicing art therapy.”

Dr. Chad Love-Lieberman continued to explain that cancer patients stand to gain so much from engaging in art, just for the purpose of pleasing oneself, and the positive effects may trigger significant positive transformation and growth in their lives.

He further cited a 2015 research study published in the JMA Internal Medicine, where the research team analyzed over twenty five studies related to art therapies for cancer patients in order to derive the general effect. According to the study, creative art therapies considerably lessened cancer patients’ pain, depression and anxiety, improving the quality of life.

“While art therapy in the past was mostly used to treat patients with mental illnesses, it is now clear that art therapy can be used to improve the condition of cancer patients, be they in remission, undergoing treatment or even just recently diagnosed,” Dr. Love-Lieberman expounded.

He further demonstrated his point with a 2015 study published in the Palliative Medicine journal. The study, which focused on cancer patients, found that art therapy sessions for them improved the quality of relationships with caregivers, family and friends. “This is because the patient not only accomplishes something tangible, but also it provides another subject for discussion with friends and family, so that they are not just focusing on the illness,” he said.

In conclusion, Dr. Chad Love-Lieberman mentioned that even in the absence of a therapist, creative art activities might be used for emotional expression. “You can begin in your own room, garage, backyard, kitchen or even at the local park. While guided therapy is great for delving into emotional conflicts and concerns, any form of creative art expression can still be therapeutic for the patient,” he finished.
