A Handbook for Healing: Art and Reflection for Patients and Caregivers

Aaron Levy and Lyndsay Hoy, Editors

Barnes Foundation, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Slought Foundation, Penn Medicine, and Health Ecologies Lab, Philadelphia


This handbook features world-renowned artworks from the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Barnes Foundation, and Slought, to support healing and reflection. We offer these artworks as a daily antidote to uncertainty—a kind of prescription for finding connection, meaning, and hope. 

Copies are freely available to the Penn Medicine community through the Family Caregiver Centers at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.  The publication is also available for purchase through the Slought Foundation bookshop and museum partners.
