This workshop explores theory and strategies for using horticultural therapy (HT) for those touched by cancer. The persistent effects of cancer treatment include physical and psychosocial issues impacting quality of life and survivorship. Learn theories and strategies for using HT as an intervention and to provide support during and after treatment. Wellness model approaches will be highlighted as seen in clinical, community and hospice settings. The workshop will include hands-on experiences and visits to therapeutic gardens. This workshop is appropriate for practitioners interested in expanding their knowledge and application of horticultural therapy and repertoire of experiential sessions for their clients. While the focus is people touched by cancer, the content is also applicable to other chronic and life threatening conditions.
