Brief Summary:
The ARTS-REHAB Project Research Study examines how meaningful engagement in a creative process might impact inpatients in rehabilitation centres. Participants in this random control trial study will be recruited from a slow-stream rehabilitation patient population. The study intervention will consist of The Royal Conservatory's Living Through the Arts program. Data will be collected using structured and semi-structured questionnaires along with observational logs and focus groups. This study will explore the effects of the program, comparing the intervention and control group participants' sense of hope and optimism for returning to their daily lives, as well as their sense of engagement in their physical recovery.
