Title: Painted hands: a qualitative inquiry into the effects of sensorial art media on the mentalisatiin process in individual art therapy with a preschool age girl in Singapore
Synopsis:

Poiesis has its etymological roots in Greek, is defined as the act of making; bringing something that was non-existent into being. Meta, a prefix from Greek, means 1) after, beyond, 2) change and 3) transcending. In this thesis, metapoiesis is defined as the emergence of human transcendence that the artist-cancer survivor endeavours as s(he) transforms the chaos of cancer to post-traumatic growth—an artistic and creative reproduction or rebirth of his or her post-cancer identity. This thesis seeks to resolve the research inquiry by drawing on the arts to examine the therapeutic values of integrating the principles of sense of coherence, the central concept of salutogenesis, within a cancer survivorship setting. A discussion of the clinical findings corralled is reviewed, followed by an examination of the benefits and limitations of integrating the immunological triad within the short-term art therapy intervention to determine the usefulness of this therapeutic shift to help cancer survivors cope with the chronic hardship of what the illness entails to build a sense of self that is ever higher.
