Irene Rosner-David, Judith A. Rubin

Beyond Words
Judith A. Rubin, Ph.D., ATR-BC
Sponsored by the American Art Therapy Association, Inc.
This film demonstrates the many ways in which art therapy can enrich and give meaning to the later years; and can affirm the wisdom and self-awareness that comes to those who have lived a full life, and have developed the capacity to manage a multitude of challenges. Art therapy can also help older adults to cope with the inevitable psychological problems that accompany aging, especially when illness and disability have taken a toll.
