The purpose of this capstone thesis was to develop a method that incorporated the use of verbal processing, art making, and patient narrative exploration through feminist theory and art therapy among patients living with life-threatening diseases. Adults with cancer tend to have a variety of psychosocial and physical challenges that come with cancer and cancer treatments. Many individuals living with cancer may also experience intense emotions, feelings of grief and loss, fears of reoccurrence or death, or changes in perceptions in the way they view the world or how others might view them. The literature demonstrated that art therapy sessions with adults living with cancer tend to be beneficial in the exploration of meaning-making, decision making, emotion regulation, reduction of anxiety and depression, and to strengthen sense of self and control. Literature that explored art therapy in oncology through a feminist approach was limited to date, but demonstrated the importance of empowerment and human connection. Through my work as an art therapy intern at an inner-city hospital, I found that feminist-informed art therapy approaches allowed patients to explore their narrative, promoted empowerment, and encourage attunement in a way that was different to "traditional" art therapy. I uncovered four main principles through my research, my studies, and working directly with patients; variability and flexibility, empowerment and control, the socioemotional states alongside the medical, and the use of the clinician as the material. I am sure with further research that more principles will be added but these four principles allowed my method to become more organized and solidified.

As the emotional components of physical illnesses become more recognised, there is a renewed interest in the potential of art therapy to help patients come to terms with injury, pain and terminal and life-long conditions. A wide range of experienced art therapists describe their work and its benefits to a variety of groups including those with cancer, debilitating conditions such as myalgic encephalopathy (M.E.) and ulcerative colitis. Physical conditions in combination with other factors such as homelessness or learning disabilities, and children with life-long and chronic conditions are also covered. The book includes discussion of spiritual and philosophical issues when mortality is faced, life change and adjustment issues, practical considerations and which models of practice art therapists find most helpful with various groups. This will be essential reading for arts therapists and students, as well as for professionals with an interest in psychological issues and wellbeing for patients with physical illness or long term conditions, such as psychotherapists and counsellors, complementary therapists, doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals.
