Interview with Gini Lawson
1. What is art therapy?
2. What role does art therapy play in palliative care?
3. Can art therapy relieve pain?
4. And what about art therapy and social pain?
Gini Lawson is an art therapist at St Christopher's Hospice in London. When we met - in her lunch break between art sessions! - she told me more about art therapy and its role in palliative care. I only had a vague idea about what art therapy is, so I asked some basic questions. What is art therapy? Can art therapy relieve pain?
