Chicago Tribune Features Adler Art Therapists’ Work With Seniors

The Chicago Tribune recently highlighted a senior citizen art therapy program and yearly show made possible, in part, by Adler University.

Coordinators at Friendship Village in Schaumburg hosted the retirement community’s Fourth Annual Intergenerational Art Show last month. It featured work by resident senior citizens paired with pieces by children from area kindergarten- through 12th-grade schools.

Friendship Village’s art therapy program is led by one mental health counselor and two art therapists from Adler University’s Chicago Campus.

The art therapy interns … work (more than) 700 hours at the community in Expressive Arts and Clinical Counseling,” the Tribune article said. “This year’s art therapy interns, Jeanna Taylor and Catherine Kelly, will receive their master’s degrees and Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) accreditations upon completion of their internships, (in which) they have (each) worked directly with 12 clients and three groups across the continuum.”
