@orlatheot Kehinde Wiley is my favorite portrait artist. He challenges the “traditions” of portrait painting. He’s most famous for his portrait of President Barack Obama. I love the idea of breaking tradition in science and practice, because one size doesn’t not fit most. #OTalk

Hello, I’m here also. Whilst at Brunel I decided to take up pottery. It was one of the best things I ever did. I felt great satisfaction. See one of my little pieces #porcelain #OTalk https://t.co/yILUHWihs9

@orlatheot I love how using creative arts as a therapeutic tool can build professional relationships with patients by having fun whilst giving the opportunity to chip on to patient narratives! Definitely why OT is great! #OTalk

@Mrsbaistow @orlatheot @OtTalk It showed years ago in Ottawa, Canada at the National Gallery, they're massive and absolutely breathtaking. This is just an article I found online. Worth looking him up! @orlatheot @OTalk_ #OTalk
Carolina Cordero @colourful_ot
@orlatheot I think creative arts can be very accessible as a therapeutic activity - some things like sports require you to have some amount of skill to enjoy it but with something like drawing or painting there's more freedom to just go for it #OTalk
Holly Flintoff @hollyflintoff
@OTalk_ Sorry #otalk
Rebecca Crouch, Occupational Therapist @RebeccaCrouch
Tough question, not sure if I can answer it on the spot! We run an art group on our #ElderlyCareUnit, our patients create all sort of amazing work on a weekly basis. #OTalk

I had learnt about flow in one of my modules. And extrinsic values of doing things. Making pottery or porcelain figures allowed me to feel the therapeutic benefits #OTalk

@OTalk_ Art is about perspective. Using creative arts as a therapeutic tool provides perspective of the clients needs, concerns, strengths, etc., as well as language to communicate during the therapeutic process. It’s use is well-documented in psychology literature. #OTalk

@orlatheot During a practice placement, I used music to encourage a service user to engage. He wasn’t responding to anybody. However, he was always playing his guitar and I often heard him singing. So, one day when he was playing in a communal area, I started to sing with him (1/2) #OTalk

Thanks will give it a read #otalk

@OTalk_ Yes! Loads of research out there. Depends what aspects you want to focus on. Consider MOHOST domains and what area you’re trying to promote. Occ identity and competency for sure #otalk

Erin Cullen @ErinOTstudent
@Sheffhospvols @RoxanaRoxyfoxy It was a great experience to see the way the activity broke barriers, started conversations that allowed people to share their stories and hopes & fears, interrupt the monotony of long hospital stays, connect to the outside world, create sense of accomplishment #otalk
Rebecca Crouch, Occupational Therapist @RebeccaCrouch
People may be reluctant to engage due to lack of confidence or interest. Some people assume you have to be creative to partake in these activities, although like @orlatheot mentioned, it's the process, not the product. Although the product can often be very rewarding. #OTalk

Sarah Cordeaux @SarahCordeaux
@orlatheot At a basic level I think that resources are a big challenge. I also agree with @Scrumpess that some therapists might not be comfortable in using creative arts in practice. It depends what you're exposed to in training/practice. #OTalk

@Sheffhospvols @RoxanaRoxyfoxy But it was completely unconnected from the work that OTs were doing on the ward, which felt like a real waste. (Apart from the Spinal injury unit, where it was separate but they supported/encouraged people to participate) #otalk

Nicholas Vowles @nicholas_vowles
@RebeccaCrouch @orlatheot Yes, difficult sometimes to find the right activity for individuals,and the logistical constraints of a hospital environment can limit activities. #otalk
Erin R @erinnnn14_OT
@RebeccaCrouch @orlatheot I think the interest does need to be there however also a clear outline of the reasons why it would be beneficial. Whether it is educational/skill development/compensatory #otalk

I think overall that we need to ensure that we articulate the benefits to our MDT as well. How it fits to our Model or Frame of Reference as a means of treatment rather than just a leisurely-based activity (unless that is the purpose). All for EBP! #otalk

@cathymc9781 @jcreektv @DrWMB The other important piece of artwork I have is above my desk at work. It is vibrant still life oil painting of flowers, painted in a naive style by a woman who survived the holocaust. It has provoked much discussion within my team and inspires me every day. #OTalk
Sophie is my name. @ciderwithsophie
@orlatheot I think we need more specific evidence around a particular arts in community settings #OTALK compared to "traditional" intervention/not meeting the need #OTALK
Molly Templeman @OTmollyy
@RebeccaCrouch @orlatheot #OTalk interest checklists are helpful tools to identify meaningful creative activities however limitations may be involved if attempting to use creative arts/activities as initial contact prior to assessment
Orla @orlatheot
@SarahCordeaux @Scrumpess Yes, not every OT would feel equip to facilitate a music or pottery session #otalk

Rebecca Crouch, Occupational Therapist @RebeccaCrouch
@erinnnn14_OT @orlatheot Or for relaxation. Or an opportunity to get away from your bay. Or to meet new people. The reasons for running a creative group can be pretty extensive. Encouraging people to give it a go & explaining they can leave if they want is also helpful. #OTalk
