Life In Art: Lifebooking Program
Artists First’s Life in Art: Lifebooking program was originally designed to serve individuals with disabilities who may have experienced numerous transitions such as turnover of support staff, caregivers and service providers. With each new relationship some may find themselves retelling their story, needs, talents, connections and losses over and over. A Lifebook can aid individuals with disabilities, veterans, or individuals who have experienced trauma in communicating their story in a creative and positive manner. Artists First gives individuals a framework for developing this tool which can be added to over a person’s lifetime and can be used to maintain connections, communicate needs and for self-advocacy.
