Art therapy · Cancer · Anxiety · Quality of life · Well-being

Introduction: Cancer and anti-cancer therapies are often as-
sociated with pain, loss of self-worth, anxiety, and depres-
sion. Alternative therapies such as art therapy are available
to improve patients’ quality of life, by reducing asthenia, de-
pression, anxiety and pain. Objective: The aim of this study
was to assess the effectiveness of art therapy, namely theatre
and plastic art workshops, on well-being and quality of life
of participants in the Lucien Neuwirth Cancer Institute.
Methods: A prospective study was conducted at the Lucien
Neuwirth Cancer Institute (France), between April 2018 and
July 2018. Cancer patients followed at the Institute have
been asked to participate in 10 2-h sessions, once a week,
based on theatre and plastic art workshops. Self-report ques-
tionnaires were used to evaluate both psychological and
quality of life domains, but also satisfaction and well-being,
before (pre-test) and after the last session (early post-test),
as well as 1-month post-experimentation (late post-test). Re-
sults: Among the 14 patients who were enroled, the QLQ-
C30 questionnaire revealed a pre-test median score of 50.0,
an early post-test score of 51.5, and the late post-test re-
vealed a score of 48.0. The anxiety test revealed median

scores of 8.0 (pre-test), 6.0 (early post-test) and 6.0 (late post-
test), respectively. The depression test reported median
scores of 4.0 (pre-test), 5.0 (early post-test) and 6.0 (late post-
test), respectively. The median well-being score difference
observed between the beginning and the end of sessions is
+2.13. The minimum satisfaction score observed is 3.50 out
of 10, and the maximum is 10 out of 10. The median is be-
tween 7.00 and 10.00. Conclusions: Art therapy sessions had
an impact on patients’ welfare. We also reported a trend to-
wards amelioration of quality of life that could probably be
confirmed in a larger population, and potentially with a dif-
ferent methodology. © 2020 S
