At Wolfson Children's Hospital, the Artists-in-Residence from Art with a Heart in Healthcare presented a thought-provoking question to pediatric patients, "What powers lie within you?" This question prompted the young patients to reflect on the qualities, strengths, and abilities that shape who they are. Inspired by this introspection, the children creatively depicted their unique characteristics by designing a superhero version of themselves. Research suggests that recognizing and leveraging inner strengths, much like superpowers, can foster personal development and confidence. As a result, this project played a role in improving the patients' hospital stay, healing process, and overall well-being.
