Floratherapy as a creative arts intervention with women in a retirement home
Floratherapy is a creative arts technique involving the manipulation and use of flowers. It can be used to facilitate clients' awareness into inner issues, allowing them to view their life situations through a nonthreatening and often nonverbal means. This article presents one portion of a qualitative research project designed to explore the experiences of 6 women in a retirement home who participated in floratherapy group sessions. The intervention is fully explained and the lived experience of 1 woman from the study is relayed in detail.
