Strengthening resilience with the Imagery Toolbox
In cases of cancer, chronic illness and crisis. How does it work?
The Imagery Toolbox contains some excellent ‘tools’ which can help us to do just this. These take the form of simple exercises, suggestions and materials which can provide you with the means to use your imaginative resources to increase your power and resilience in difficult times of illness or crisis and recovery.
In 1997 Jan and his colleagues set up the foundation Kanker in Beeld (Cancer in Images); this has led to the growth of a large national network of art studios, choirs and other creative activities.
The application of the Imagery Toolbox 3.0 has been facilitated by collaboration with many organizations including the Foundation Kanker in Beeld (Cancer in Images), Medical Centers, Cancer Care Centre and Walk-in centers (Maggie’s Centers), IPSO, Care for Cancer and hospices throughout the Netherlands.
Scientific research is conducted in collaboration with the University for Humanistic Studies, The University of Groningen and Twente University.
