This project is studying adolescents between the ages of 12 to 18 years that come to the emergency department and are in pain. We want to find out how well art therapy is able to decrease the pain they are experiencing. Art therapy will involve making art and working with an art therapist to find new ways of expressing thoughts and feelings through art making.
In adolescents presenting to the emergency department with a painful condition, our aims are as follows:
Aim #1: To determine the degree that art therapy intervention reduces pain and anxiety.
Aim #2: To determine the degree that art therapy reduces pain and anxiety 1 hour after the intervention.
Aim #3: To explore the qualitative experience of patients undergoing art therapy intervention.

Experimental: Art Therapy Intervention
Standardized mixed media art therapy directives (e.g. drawing/painting/collaging within a circle)
Other: Art Therapy Intervention
Standardized mixed media art directives.
- Change in patient pain intensity: Verbal Numerical Rating Scale [ Time Frame: 1 hour ]Pain intensity measured using the Verbal Numerical Rating Scale. Minimum score (no pain) = 0, maximum score (most/worst pain) = 10.
- Change in patient anxiety: Short Form STAI [ Time Frame: 1 hour ]Anxiety measured using the short form State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI). Consists of six short statements (e.g. "I feel calm", "I am tense"). For each statement, subject selects a response on a 4-point Likert scale, ranging from 1=Not at all, to 4=Very much.
- Perception of pain and anxiety: Qualitative questions [ Time Frame: 1 hour ]Qualitative questions (3): 1. How would you describe this art therapy session? 2. What were some sensations you experienced in your body while you were engaged in the session? 3. Is there anything else you would like to say about what you are experiencing in your body and the art therapy session?
