We are developing and testing a series of creative arts programs designed to build resilience among critical care & emergency medicine professionals. The programs will use qualitative, mixed-method, and randomized controlled study designs and will integrate visual arts therapy, music therapy, dance/movement therapy, and creative writing/poetry. Research activities will include focus groups of important stakeholders, such as healthcare providers, unit managers and hospital administrators, national critical care leadership, and arts therapy experts.
Organization partners include Ponzio Creative Arts Therapy Program at Children's Hospital Colorado and Lighthouse Writers Workshop. These organizations will design experimental tasks suitable for each artistic domain and hold group sessions with participants.
