“Women at Their Golden Ages” in Dialogue with Change in the Nature
Change is a challenge, an invitation for us to move on from one moment to another and we grow up in response to the moments of changes. Explore the challenges and their responses to “Change” on women at their golden ages through the Horticultural therapy (HT) and the Expressive Arts therapy (EXA). Using the phenomenological approach and methods through the intermodal art making processes, in company with the observations, have interviews and questionnaires with the clients to arrive the answers for three research questions: (1) What do “Change” in life mean to us? (2) What challenges are there when we face changes? (3) What are the resources in response to the changes?
