The Healing Arts Program focuses on using art therapy as a way for Soldiers, primarily those who have sustained a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) or are dealing with behavioral health issues, to express and communicate their emotions through their artwork, while also promoting a sense of well-being and relaxation. The Healing Arts program was developed at the National Intrepid Center of Excellence, a part of the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and added to the four-week program that focuses on Soldiers’ cognitive, physical and behavioral health rehabilitation. The program uses creative arts such as painting, drawing, sculpting and creative writing in both individual and group settings. In 2015, Soldiers participating in the program had the opportunity to submit their artwork to the Warrior Care and Transition to be considered as part of the Warrior Care Month Healing Arts Ceremony at the Pentagon on November 12th. This gallery features artwork created by WCT Soldiers and Veterans.
