Graphic Medicine: The Therapeutic Benefits of Art Journaling

An evolving new art form, Graphic Medicine helps us express through images we draw, write and color the highs and lows, the difficult moments of an illness, recovery progress, or caregiving that many experience.

Write it before you forget the experience; draw so you are done remembering it; share it so you’re not the only one who knows it, so you can put yourself in control. Graphic medicine is transformative. The cognitive distance you create by putting your story down on paper is not just psychologically empowering, it has a range of health benefits from lowering blood pressure, anxiety, depression and insomnia to improving self-esteem and the treatment response.              
                                                                                      
Note: Recommended for laypersons as well as those in the medical profession, and health practitioners.
