Abstract

Depression in cancer patients tends to be overlooked and can worsen their condition. One of the Mindfulness-based interventions to treat depression in cancer patients is mindfulness-based art therapy (MBAT). MBAT combines an art therapy approach with mindfulness that aims to provide individuals the opportunity to reconnect their thoughts and feelings through art activities. The effectiveness of mindfulness-based art therapy on depression is not yet clear compared to other more developed mindfulness-based approaches. In this study, researchers aimed to review journal articles regarding the effectiveness of art therapy-based mindfulness interventions in reducing depressive symptoms in cancer patients that had been previously studied. Furthermore, the effectiveness of the intervention based on the applied intervention procedure is also reviewed in this article. It is found that the Mindfulness-based art therapy intervention is effective in reducing depressive symptoms in cancer patients with 8-12 weeks’ treatment with a duration of 45-150 minutes/session and given by a certified or trained therapist.
