Title: The use of art therapy with an individual living with HIV: a qualitative single case study in Singapore
Synopsis:

The use of art therapy for people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) in Singapore has not been studied before, or at least not made available to the public. In Singapore where there are 5973 Singapore residents reported with HIV/AIDS (Ministry of Health, 2013). Many PLWHA might face psychological distress caused by social stigma (ViiV Healthcare, 2012) or other psychological factors. Art therapy improve the psychological status of the clients would help them lead more positive lives and improve their general quality of life. By providing a safe space and the attuned therapist, art therapy would encourage PLWHA to engage in explorations of their emotions due to the possible stigma faced and the acceptance of having a chronic disease. The writer has noticed a gap in local research with this population, hence the purpose of this study is to survey the efficacy of short term art therapy
with an individual living with HIV.
