Abstract

This paper will describe and discuss a pilot project which aimed to explore whether art therapy is helpful for people with Parkinson's disease and their carers. The rationale, aims and objectives of the project will be presented, together with practical information about the mecfhanisms for setting up the project - the context, getting referrals, the sessions, the involvement of relevant staff, involvement of the carers and relatives, and the insights gained from the whole process including the post-therapy interviews. Images are not included, as this will be the focus of a further paper.
