Art Therapy
Created in 1980, Riverview Medical Center’s Art Therapy Program has been providing therapeutic support groups to children who have experienced an illness or death in the family. The program provides a safe creative outlet for expression and coping using the art therapy process. The groups are led by an experienced licensed clinical social worker and board certified art therapist.

Additionally, Riverview offers an open art studio for adults in all stages of their cancer journey. From newly diagnosed patients to those who have completed treatment, the open studio offers a safe place to explore a wide range of art materials as a method of expression or coping. Individual art therapy is offered bedside or chair-side to adult patients receiving cancer treatment. Art therapy is a recognized treatment modality that is an essential component to health, healing, and well-being. Art talent is not required for participation in art therapy. If you are interested in the Art Therapy services, please call 732-530-2382.

Pet Therapy
“Man’s Best Friend” has true meaning at Riverview.

Providing a welcome break in the day for patients, a new animal-assisted therapy program at Riverview provides patients comfort and companionship in a way that increases emotional well-being and promotes healing for patients through weekly visits.

The program is coordinated through the hospital’s volunteer program, and visits the hospital through a partnership with Bright and Beautiful Therapy Dogs Inc, a nonprofit organization based in New Jersey.

Did you know…?

  • Research by the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine Research Center for Human-Animal Interaction (ReCHAI) suggests that visits with animals may improve patient outcomes, decrease length of hospital stay, help with confusion, depression, and manage pain symptoms.
  • Interaction with animals has also been shown to reduce blood pressure, increase sensory stimulation, inspire a sense of purpose, increase social interactions with staff, and reduce loneliness by creating a sense of companionship.

For more information about our Pet Therapy program, or to volunteer, please contact Colleen Wolfe at 732-530-2253.
